The famous Portland Head Light on Cape Elizabeth at Fort Williams Park.
This past weekend the piano man and I took a vacation break and drove to Portland, Maine.
Most New Brunswicker's go to Portland for the great shopping. In fact, I have been know to participate in such shopping trips with my girl friends many times over the years to either Bangor or Portland and parts in between (Freeport and Augusta). I am not a big clothes shopper but rather love to look at home decor and such. Even then I don't buy a lot. I already have plenty but there's sometimes that little something different that I might find.
The beautifully rugged coastline.
We did do some shopping and we also did some site seeing.
We love the coastline so made sure we took in the scenery on Friday afternoon while the weather was so nice. (it was sunny and about 65 F with a strong wind blowing)
I'll share more photos of this beautiful lighthouse in another post.
On Saturday morning we woke to rain and wind but I was more excited about breakfast and didn't really care about the weather.
You see....we were meeting my blog friend Vee, of the blog
A Haven for Vee, and her husband, John, for breakfast at Cracker Barrel Restaurant. This is the first time I've met Vee in person and she is every bit as nice as her blog. We had a lovely visit over breakfast. Even Murray and John had lots in common to talk about.
Vee and John
Vee and me
We had a grand time chatting and even exchanged gifts.
Vee is so sweet and thoughtful.
This is the third time I've met a blogger in person and one just never knows how the meeting might go. We wonder if we have anything in common other than our blogs and if we could be friends beyond the computer screen. Our friendships are formed in comments and emails back and forth until a friendship grows and we do find common interests. Vee is one of those people that one wants to know better and spend time with in person.
I am so glad we had this opportunity to meet in person as it confirmed what I already knew from our visiting back and forth.
Vee is a wonderful, sweet, down to earth friend.
So, if you don't follow Vee's blog, I would invite you to do so and get to know her. I'm sure glad I did!
Have you ever met a blogging friend in person?
I'll be back tomorrow with more photos from Maine.
I hope you had a great weekend and that your week
will be blessed.
