portland: permission to blog

Posted by susan on October 6th, 2008. Filed under: everyday adventures.

On our usual girls weekend getaways, my friends and I try to get to a place where at least some of us have never been. After Providence and Portsmouth, we finally reached a destination that was new to me – Portland, Maine.

On Saturday, we took a stroll around Old Port…

Did you know that a portion of the Berlin Wall resides here?


Sometimes when I go out with my non blogger friends, I get a lot of, “you can’t blog that!” after taking a photo. The truth is, I rarely ever post pictures of people anyway – it really never crosses my mind.

But, this weekend was different. I actually got some, “You can blog that one!’ So this time, I will.

Don’t I have beautiful friends?

Portland has a pretty decent night life. Though you would never know it from people’s reactions after asking us where we were from.

“We’re not from around here, we’re actually from Boston, ” we answered.
“Really? Then what the heck are you doing in Portland,” they replied, disturbed.

I’ll tell you what we did. We played games of mammoth proportions.

The Oasis has giant jenga and…

It was so fun. Portland wasn’t just seaside and bars for us, however it is getting pretty late. So – my lazy, picture heavy and very late weekend recap will have to spill over into Thursday, when I blog about all the awesome food we ate too…
