For Memorial Day weekend my friend Kasey came out from Chicago for a visit – we got to do some catching up, get in some shopping, eat some seafood, and soak in the sun.

We had a picnic at Evergreen and saw baby ducks and snapping turtles.

Can't believe Mom let me get this close

Played a string of candlepin and a few bucks worth of pinball.

Picked up lupines and local food from the farmer’s market – including some tasty greens from my favorite farmers.

We did some shopping for clothes in Freeport.

Caught a game at the ballpark (the first time I ever saw the Seadogs win!)

Made a fabulous local feast – including  Mr. Cleaver’s scallops, Kasey’s lobster and clam chowdah, and my first (quite successful) attempt at crab cakes

A trip to the chilly beach and a slightly warmer lighthouse.

And don’t worry – Mr. Cleaver didn’t miss out on all the fun – he just didn’t make it into all that many pictures!

(and thanks to Kasey for the great time and the use some of your photos – you’re welcome back anytime)
