Happy last day of July! Here’s a July round up of all the posts I published in July.
How did your month go?
Mine was hotter than usual here on the Maine coast.
After surviving a bout of invasive skin cancer last year I’m limiting my sun exposure so I’m not spending nearly as much time in the water as I did a few summers ago.
We try to plan our beach trips for later in the afternoon after the sun has reached its peak and I stay covered with hat and sunblock.
smother slather the teenager with sunblock too even though he usually protests.
What are you looking forward to in August?
The teenager and I usually spend a day or two back to school shopping in Portland later in the month.
We usually get lunch at this amazing place called Duckfat. I highly recommend it if you’re ever in Maine.
The specialty is french fries fried in, you guessed it, duck fat. The fries are served with an assortment of dipping sauces including our faves, truffle ketchup and horseradish mayonnaise.
