Day 15 On to Oquossoc

We left Massachusetts headed for Maine. The drive was uneventful. In the past it has always been our routine to stop for a meal at the Chickadee Restaurant in Turner, Me for a seafood dinner. We usually save out appetites and skip the previous meal, because the servings at The Chickadee are large and we anticipate this meal all the way to Maine.
David always has the fisherman's platter with shrimp, scallops, clams and fried fish served over a heaping mound of fresh cut homemade French fries. I usually have the sweet Maine fried shrimp. The shrimp here in Maine is totally different from another shrimp I have had. It is small and sweet. This year the Chickadee restaurant was closed after being there for almost 100 years. Our years of tradition gone, never to be the same again.

Instead of the Chickadee we decided to try the Weathervane in Portland. Yes, it is a chain, but what can you do when you want Maine seafood and there's no Chickadee. I must say we were not disappointed. I ordered a cup of clam chowder, which was more like a bowl, and very good I might add.

David had the fried haddock and French fries. Very good,

I also had a small order of fried shrimp and French fries, We never eat like this at home, but when on vacation you might as well enjoy the area and the food. 

We stopped by David's sister Ann's house for a quick visit with her and her 3 beautiful kitties. One, Simba looks and acts so much like Bentley. They were all special and friendly.
On the way to the camp we saw 2 moose. One ran right across the road in front of the MH and it was lucky David missed him. He was large and would have done some major damage.
It was dark when we arrived at the camp. We unloaded the kitties one at a time. They had a wonderful time exploring everything. All the new smells, nooks and crannies to hide in. The temp was low 40's and David lit the wood stove. Bentley settled right in to keep warms.

Then Nicky joined him. "What's that crackling sound I hear"?

Finnegan decided the top bunk bed was for him.
Wait until they wake up in the daylight and see there's a lake out front and ducks that will come to visit.

Nicky, enjoying the sofa. They are so spoiled.

We should be here for 5 days and Glynda comes up tomorrow, so we should have a nice relaxing time at the camp.
