6/17/14 Tuesday in Moody, ME (Moody Beach-TT/OW)
John was ready to leave the rig when I woke up this morning. He explained that since the CRV needed its oil change he wanted to get it done before the day got going so he wouldn’t miss anything with the “gang”. He went through the “Express” oil change and got back around 9 am. Good job! Great planning ahead.
Sure enough around 10 am John had talked with the friends and they were going to WalMart. He asked if we want to go along. Well, we’d just done our grocery shopping yesterday but heck, why not? We went with only canned chili on our list but ended up spending $33 on groceries and t-shirts. Hey, they were Maine t-shirts and a good deal, how could we resist?
A lady had mentioned to us the other day a “Shanes” (didn’t know how to spell it) with great lobster rolls at a great price and hand packed ice cream too. We drove the wrong direction at first but we did make our way there eventually. Was it ever worth it!!!! The guy in black is Shain himself. He personally delivers your food even. He told me that he thought how can I get customers in to buy my ice cream? So he came up with lobster rolls at a great price. He said that way 62% of those who come in for the lobster rolls get ice cream.
I had the lobster roll of course while John enjoyed the chowder (and a hot dog). He said it was the best chowder he’d ever had. I have to say that my buttered lobster, in a light, grilled roll, was melt-in-your mouth delicious. They are in Sanford, ME. Well worth the trip.
After that we stopped at more t-shirt stores. Larry needed some for his grandchildren. He will be flying to Seattle early Wednesday and will get to see them there. John found a fleece jacket he really liked and after going to some other t-shirt stores we came back to purchase that one.
Tonight we could have our leftover pork, mashed potatoes and gravy supper. Then we’d been invited to Sherry/Randy’s for brownies and ice cream as a going away party for Larry. Boy was that ever delicious and rich!!! Safe travels, Larry!
