These are Real Men!

June 26, 2008

Meet your top notch Maintenance Crew.  Norm Cantera heads up the pack on the right, followed up with his right and left hands – Chuck and Adam.  Adam is in the middle. 

These guys are amazing.  They can build just about anything you can dream up.  They mow, mulch, lift, haul, carry, and glue the entire resort!

We would be lost without the real men of The Falls!!

Spoiled Rotten. One of Keith’s favorites

June 16, 2008

Now that life is in full swing here in Ogunquit, my favorite “gift shop” has geared up with all their new 2008 merchandise. If you’ve never been to Spoiled Rotten, you’ve got to make the visit! It’s located on Beach Street in the center of town-they have a website that is way cool-it has a live video cam focused on the street that goes to the beach. Their latest venture in candles is another special scent called Footbridge-sort of a jasmine smell-terrific like all the special Ogunquit scents. Why do a plastic lobster when you can send special candles from Ogunquit? Oh, now I have to add to my collection of Spoiled Rotten tee’s and sweats–they now have them in Italian -Viziami–. You can spend hours looking in every nook and cranny in this place and you’ll be amazed at what you you can find!
