Higgins Beach, Maine - June 30 and July 1, 2007
- Last weekend we took a weekend warrior trip to Sue's grandmother's cottage. Five-and-a-half hours up on Friday night, six hours back (including a stop to stock up at the New Hampshire State Liquor Store) on Sunday. In between we mostly ate - fried clams, lobster rolls, hamburgers off the grill - and drank. Sure, there was wine and beer, but we also had an impromptu milk-tasting. Gotta love vanilla milk - it doesn't get much more wholesome than that.
We also saw Ratatouille
, which, like all of Pixar's movies, was superb. The only thing even slightly wrong with the movie was that Sue didn't want to watch it at the drive-in (yes, they still have drive-in movie theaters in Maine!), but even the bland multiplex couldn't diminish my enjoyment. I don't even know why I bother watching movies that aren't made by Pixar anymore.
