We’re off today on our last weekend trip of the summer – and our last as a family of three – to Portland Maine.  We’re taking the Downeaster.  I’ve never been to Portland (through Portland, yes; to Portland, no), and although our family took the train to Florida back in the 80’s, neither Larry not the Peep have ever been on a train trip, so it ought to be interesting.

We’re travelling pretty light, too – I managed to pack for all of us into one suitcase; I can’t imagine ever being able to do this again.  For the next few years we’ll be dragging along strollers, diapers, etc., for one thing, and after that there will still be more clothing than will fit into one carry-on sized suitcase.

I’m told Portland is a very walkable city.  I’m also told that it has more restaurants per capita than any other city in the US.  Hopefully those things will cancel each other out, and I won’t come back having bloated myself into oblivion.

Time will tell.

Have a great weekend!
