Sometimes you head out for the sunset just because you have the opportunity, even though the sky doesn’t look all that promising. And sometimes you like one view of the sky from Hudson Beach, but your friend wants to watch from the opposite end of the area. You may have been less than gracious, wanting to see the same view you always see. And then you might look at your pictures and think that it wasn’t such a bad outing after all.
I think I was the first one to mention that I’d been craving chicken wings, which led to a discussion of which local restaurants served the best wings. But my criteria for wings is where can I go and get photos also, and with that in mind Hooters was the obvious choice. Naked wings with a Parmesan rub, and one order of sunset please.
In addition to offering up the chance for a pretty sunset to go with your wings, this Hooter’s location is only minutes from home. So it will stay at the top of my list for a place to grab a beer and some wings.
Market Elaine comes to the shopping center called The Grove, on the 1st Friday of the month. Last month’s was rained out, but we decided to try again last night and we both were stunned at how huge this event was. This row of vendors was adjacent to the Crate with it’s shops and restaurants. So we started walking…
I hadn’t been to a craft show in a long time, so I was interested to see what the vendors had for sale. There were clothes, for kids and adults, and not just tee shirts either. I was surprised at all the vendors selling crocheted creatures, I didn’t know they were popular. There were plants, Halloween decorations, several wood workers, and lots of baked goods. A fun way to spend an evening, but wear your walking shoes if you go!
I think I expected vegetables. There were plenty of bakery items, which I reluctantly passed by while polishing up my halo. A small sea of vendor tents, which we also saw last night at the nearby First Friday event. We saw them as they were being taken down just in time for the torrential rains to pour down. But it was a beautiful day today, but hot. This was supposed to be our first stop, then we thought we might head to Safety Harbor to see if we might see the launch from Cape Canaveral, but when we saw that it was scrapped again we headed home. Perhaps the storms will hold off tonight and we’ll see a sunset. Maybe…
This event is held on the first and third Saturday of the month. Soon it will be perfect weather for it, but we are still trying to escape the heat at the moment.
“Put on your red shoes and dance the blues,”
Just thinking about looking at my pictures from last night had David Bowie in my head all day. As with most of the music of my youth I can sing the song but have no clue in the world who sang it, I looked it up.
It really was a no brainer. Friday night at Krate, with live music, this time from the 70s and 80s. Music and dancing for photo ops, plus the timing would include the sunset, and even if a storm blew in there would always be the food. I opted for the same thing I got last time, a frozen sangria and the Southwest egg rolls from Blush.
I had several ulterior motives in mind when it came to this recent trip of ours. Going back to Red’s Eats was first and foremost on the list. So as we approached our first destination of Boothbay Harbor, ME I was heartbroken to drive past a closed and shuttered-up shop. It looked so sad and forlorn without the crowds out front and spilling down the hill to the right. I needn’t have worried though, it was only that it was Monday, they would be back in business the next day.
We stopped here as we were leaving ME and headed to my friend in NH. We bought extras to share. I failed to take a picture of the actual donut I got, and ate on the spot. It was a blueberry donut with lemon glaze. I got one last time I was here and it was so good that I went back the next day for another, and they were gone. Their season had ended, apple cinnamon donuts were the new featured donut. The apple was good, but I’m so glad the blueberry/lemon were back in season on this day. I was hungry…
