"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Sunday Activities

Our friend from Maryland was visiting. In the afternoon we met him at his Hampton lodging and we headed for Maine.

The first stop: Chauncey Creek Lobsters. All three of us ordered a lobster roll and a side of fried onion rings. The chaps had beer, and I drank my usual.

We braved the traffic--it was an awesome day, the whole world was on the coast--and headed to York. The good thing about getting stuck in a major traffic jam was being able to take photos of our final destination--Nubble Light. Careful framing of the shot makes the beach look far, far less populated than it actually was!

As usual, Nubble Light was looking photogenic.

Heading back along Route 1, we stopped in at the Maine Prisons gift shop.

The Shawshank Redemption is my Chap's favourite movie, ever. So I bought him a t-shirt.

We paused in Portsmouth to quench our thirst at Molly Malone's, the Irish Pub. They have Strongbow cider--draft--so I was happy, although Bulmer's would've been more authentically Irish!
