Portland, Maine

Chris, Johnny, Alicia and I drove to Portland, ME, through a sprinkling storm that transformed into a deluge by the next day. Lush New England is beginning its transformation to fall, and patches of leaves in the forests and thick stands of trees along the highway are burning stark, vibrant reds, yellows and autumn orange. To the chagrin of Johnny and Chris, Alicia and I spent too much time, in their opinion, poking through little shops. They ditched us to tour the Shipyard Brewing Company Brewery on the outskirts of town, where we ended up meeting them late afternoon. As you can see from the picture, the guys gave the brewery four strong thumbs down. The whole city smelled like sea-salt and smoke, even through the rain. Saturday night, we ate incredible pizza at a local restaurant: caramelized onions and figs. It might have been the best pizza I've ever eaten.
