Live Maine Lobster by Laura Trevey
My husband and I are on our way to dinner in the darling coastal town of Ogunquit.
It's Memorial Day weekend and he surprised me with five days in a cottage in one of the most picturesque and quaint towns of coastal Maine.
The cottage is a converted barn, three levels, two decks, one covered where we eat and one on the top level on which to sun. The place was rehabbed a few years ago. A large lovely multi-paned window with old wavy glass serves as the frontpiece to the living area. The kitchen is galley-style, fully equipped, the decor is early American and there are three bedrooms in the upper reaches of the barn all quite nautical in decor. Two bathrooms make this a perfect getaway right in the middle of a lovely little cove on a peninsula. Everyone walks or bikes or drives by on the street below.
The weather has been spectacular and promises to continue which is a great beginning to what we northern New Englanders hope will be a sunny and satisfying summer. Fingers crossed!
Can you guess what we're going to eat tonight?
