div>Almost a month ago, we went on vacation to Freeport, Maine. We'd rented a house on the water and spent lots of time watching it rain.

View from the deck of the house we stayed at
We did lots of shopping both at LL Bean and other outlets. (North Face sample sale rocks!)
The boys did the kayaking walk-0n-adventure at LLBean and Craig and I did fly casting...learning to fly fish, albeit on grass.

This was the re-created fort at Colonial Pemaquid, which was a fun excursion before we headed down to the lighthouse.
The boys enjoyed their lobster dinners. Eating right on the dock is so fun, even if it was still cool when we visited.

AT the boot. The $ spent is cushioned by the fact that it was all cashback award $.

At the Maritime Museum in Bath. the kids got to launch the boat, learning in the process of how the tall ships were built on frames that would help them launch into the water. A very good musuem with lots of room for the kids to play and run around. Bath is also home to Halcyon Yarn, which got an hour's worth of attention from me and plenty of $ too. Hope to turn that into a nice project one day!
All in all a restful vacation spent in weather that is not hot and humid!
