Birthday Fun

Jeremy's birthday was on Monday but we decided to celebrate on Saturday because Jeremy found a restaurant he wanted to try about an hour away in Rockport. Since neither of us had been to the Rockport/Camden area, we decided to make an evening of it.

Jeremy also decided that he should get his birthday cake early since he was leaving for Vienna on Wednesday. He was afraid that if he didn't get it until Monday, he wouldn't be able to eat much of it before he left. Therefore, he got it on Saturday. I had everything to make him a peanut butter and jelly cake and then he saw a giant whoopie pie cake at a grocery store and decided he wanted that instead.

It was pretty tasty.

For his birthday meal, Jeremy wanted shepherd's pie and found a restaurant in Rockport called Shepherd's Pie. How fitting. We split a cheese plate and I had the fried clam tacos and Jeremy the shepherd's pie. It was all delicious.

Down at the harbor we saw Andre the Seal. I used to read a story about Andre to a kid I worked with. We read the story a lot so I was a little excited to see the statue dedicated to him.

After eating we headed to Camden to walk around and do some people watching. It's a nice area with a beautiful harbor.

We both enjoyed Camden/Rockport and plan on going again sometime.

I've been to Camden! That's the one place in Maine that I've been. Other than the bus in and out of Augusta. There is a nice second hand store downtown too, along the main road. I don't remember the name of it but I knew a lady who worked there. I don't remember her name either but her last name is Dorr ("door"). She was/is great. A very sweet, hospitable and old fashioned lady. Anyway, there are some great places to eat lobster in Camden, with a beautiful view of the harbor. Sigh... I want to go.

Clam tacos? I've never even heard of them. I guess they'd only be popular near the ocean.
