The past two days have included a ton of walking on nothing but residential streets. While there are some beautiful homes, it is draining to not have the option to pop into a store for a drink and a quick snack.
I left Portsmouth, crossing over the Memorial Bridge into Kittery. I didn't see a big 'Welcome to Maine' sign anyway, so that was a bit of a letdown.
The best part of my walk was when I got to drop into Eliot Meet Market; no, that's not a spelling mistake on 'meet'. It was there I met Scott, the funny and inquisitive guy behind the counter. When he and some customers found out why I was there, Scott asked if my car broke down.
It turns out Scott is writing a book. I wanted to snap a quick picture of the cover, but I didn't think that would be right. You see, he's writing it, for now, on a stack of paper plates!
Scott's parting words about the market: "Where you get what you need, not necessarily what you want."
After cooling down and rehydrating, I was off again towards South Berwick, where I would meet up with Michelle and Alexandra.
But before I did, I had to take a quick Uber ride, and with whom did I ride? None other than Uber Grandma herself! It was quite the story I heard!
The day was topped off with happy hour margaritas at Hooks Chill & Grille in Ogunquit.
Yesterday's walk to Kennebunk did not take me towards the beach. It ended in a place with nothing but a post office and a tavern that wasn't yet open. Cute area, but nothing around.
I journeyed back to Wells for a relaxing night at Full Circle, sipping on cocktails on the roof deck with Michelle.
Today I'll head to Biddeford, and then tomorrow I get to walk with Dan; he's traveled all the way from Pennsylvania to join me!
'Til next time!
