To do a little catching up, Robert (my older son) and I left on Sunday morning from California at 7am, landed at JFK airport in New York around 3:18pm NY time and then FINALLY took off again...2 hours late...heading for Portland, Maine. This is our BIG Mother-Son trip out east to visit colleges.
After trying to get a good nights sleep at the Comfort Inn in Brunswick, Maine...
|Gotta love the Crabby Lobstah Wagon. Probably had great Lobstah rolls!|
After jogging around the Bowdoin College Campus, I got a feel for where we needed to go to park for the college tour and information session which Robert and I were going to attend a little later this morning. So I headed out back down Maine Street and here were a few other sights I ran by...
TIME TO VISIT BOWDOIN COLLEGE IN BRUNSWICK, ME
After that meeting, it was time to catch up to the campus tour. The campus is beautiful...
|Bowdoin Art Gallery|
|The Chapel on Bowdoin|
|The Admissions Office|
|Robert standing by the Bowdoin Polar Bear|
During the tour...we walked through the Student Union, the Science building, one of the student dorms and a few other buildings. After the tour, we went to the information session to learn more about the student life on campus, the academics and the admissions process. All good info.
Once the session was over, we made our way back to the student union for a little shopping...you can't leave a perspective college without purchasing a T-shirt and hoodie, right? Then it was time to find lunch.
Ok...when in Maine, do what the Mainers do...eat lobstah! We found this great small shake right on the side of the highway.
The small inside area, had the counter you order at and then the tanks which held the fresh crab, shrimp, lobster and clams.
And here is lunch....
|Top right = Fresh New England Clam Chowdar|
Below the Chowdah = 1 pound of fresh steamed clams
Below the Clams = 1.5 pounds of fresh steamed lobster (with a side of slaw)
Below the Lobstah = a freshly lobstah roll and fries
COLLEGE VISIT #2: COLBY COLLEGE, WATERVILLE, ME
|The large lawn in from of the Colby Library|
|Robert with the Colby White Mule|
A 5 hour drive from Maine, through a small part of New Hampshire and then west to where we are this evening...Hadley, MA. Tomorrow: Amherst and Williams.
Until then, take care and remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!
