vacation food

Can't go to Maine without having lobster once a day!

Strangely, the dogs don't like lobster.  But they did LOVE Gifford's Maine tracks ice cream (and their toasted coconut ice cream too -YUM!, oh yea, and the Maine Wild Blueberry ice cream was pretty good too).
This was the closest they came to eating lobster:

Goldthwaite's was my favorite place to eat (I think we ate a meal there everyday) - lobster rolls, crab rolls, delicious french fries and spicy crab cake salad (YUM)!

It had a nice view too.

Chewy liked the fact that Grandpa seemed to eat all the time!  We're pretty sure that he has a hollow leg.  And when he wasn't eating, he left his socks within easy reach, so the dogs could steal them and carry them around the house!

We went a little ghetto on the deck.  Had to put the table on the lounge chair to keep food safe from vulture Chewy.  Had to put the chair thru the lounge chair and then put the leg on a plastic container, because it had a broken leg.  Ahh, vacation rentals, you never know what you're gonna get.

Finally, the food lady brought really, really good hot dogs, which the dogs really, really loved (and so did us humans).  

Thanks for coming on vacation with us.  Now, listen to the waves:

Food, family and fun....what a perfect vacation. And to top it off you add the beach....nothing better. I lived all my life living within five minutes of the beach and walked on it practically every day...until I came to USA ....that is one thing I miss terribly.

You are lucky your family is willing to go on vacation with your dogs.

Wow, that crab salad looked so good! What the dogs didn't like lobster, not even to roll in the shells? That's what my guys always seem to want to do, LOL.

I love how in the video Oreo was focused on YOU!
Chewy just stood and smiled at the waves!
Yum....Lobster AND crab every day? I would do the same my friend!
Pure deliciousness!

I loved your vacation - next time I want to go along for real! I would definitely enjoy eating every time your dad does! :)

Oreo and Chewy's Mainely Treat looks as good as your Spicy Crab Cake Salad. Lots of good stuff from Down East. I just read that Eventide Oyster Co.'s lobster roll gets the "Best of Maine" award. They are located in Portland - a bit far from where you were. We need to let the judges know about Goldthwaite's. For your Dad, The Stockholm to Caribou route made the "Best of Bike Maine". He might have already done it with Jeff. Lots of happy memories. Aloha.

Chewy is just like Benji -- never misses a beat when it comes to food.

Mommy chuckled at Chewy in the photos because there is such an incredible view of the ocean and the buildings in the background and all that Chewy is focused on is looking at your dad's plate of food.
