This trip to Maine was a first for both Sasha and myself… and we wanted to highlight a few things we loved.
1. Maine - Wow! What a beautiful place! When we first entered the state and saw that it was called “Vacationland” we laughed - but we get it now. I can only imagine how intense it is in the winter but in warmer weather the scenery is breathtaking. And with the abbreviation of ME. it creates many hours of word play fun…
2. Grape Nut Ice Cream - look at that photo!! That is true love! Sasha doesn’t even like Grape Nuts (something about how it feels like eating gravel) but when she saw it she couldn’t resist. And for me, a Grape Nut fan, it is amazing! Vanilla ice cream and Grape Nuts at 11am… Which brings us to:
3. Doorman’s Dairy Dream - Outside Rockland, ME. We were driving out of town and saw this oasis and knew we had to stop… Being a Dairy Dream it is all in white with just a window for service. A single scoop cone and a milk shake cost the extraordiary price of $3.75. WTF?!
4. D.A.R.E. - Anyone our age remembers D.A.R.E. coming to the school telling us of the horrors of drugs… Now if they had come in this smokin’ van perhaps we would have actually listened!! When I saw this I actually said “There are so many things right about this- where do I begin…”
