We arrived in Portland around 11 a.m. and planned to meet Scott near the StarBucks where Shelby worked. Steve dropped me off while he found a parking place and I spotted Scott & Shelby across the street. I yelled for him like a crazy woman, but I didn't care! It had been too long since we had seen him! He had arranged to get off work for the weekend and we were so thankful!
Shelby had to go on in to work at StarBucks, but we got to give her a quick hug, get some coffee, and meet some of her co-workers. Isn't her StarBucks in the cutest little block?
Scott then began showing us around beautiful Portland!
Below is the restaurant where Scott works. I wanted to eat there, but he wasn't too fond of that idea.
Afterwards, we drove down to the coast and walked along the rocks, skipping rocks, looking for sea glass and enjoying the beautiful view.
That night we had a belated birthday celebration for Scott down in the Old Port at Gilbert's- he got a lobster and the rest of us had lobster rolls! Wish I had taken a picture! They showed us where they had put their lock from their moving truck among all the other locks- it's a local tradition!
The next day is somewhat of a blur but after Shelby got off work we picked them up at their cute apartment.
And we got to meet Kevin, Shelby and Scott's chinchilla!
Then off to Portland Head Light built in 1787.
It was just beautiful! Perfect weather, too! We ended the night enjoying some wonderful pizza together!
On Monday before Steve left for work, he and Scott met for one last breakfast. Scott came back to our hotel afterwards and caught up on some sleep since he had to work later that day. When Shelby got off work we walked around the cute city some more. I could've spent days looking at all of the unique shops!
Then it was time for Scott to go to work. Hated to see him go- it was just too short of a visit, but so thankful for it just the same. One last hug!
We can't wait until the next time we get to see them! It was so good to be with them again!
We love you, Scott and Shelby!
