This beautiful stretch of September weather is impossible to ignore. We left our boxes behind last Sunday, and decided to enjoy a family picnic at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth. MP also wanted to check out the Bite Into Maine food truck, which has received national attention for their lobster rolls, and the progress of The Fort Williams Arboretum.

We brought hamburgers, hot dogs, salads, and fruit skewers along, but MP and DP decided to split a Bite Into Maine lobster roll as an appetizer (we chose a version with wasabi mayonnaise). The lobster roll offered generous pieces of lobster and a hint of spice. The accolades are well-deserved— this roll is the perfect late summer treat.

We’re so fortunate to have readers like you. All of your suggestions for favorite local getaways were wonderful. Thank you! Congratulations goes to Sandy Abbott, who returns to York with her loved ones every year:

My family goes to York Beach every summer for a long weekend. My grandparents lived there, and when they died, we continued to take our sons there and do all of the same traditions my grandparents and parents did with me. Plus we added some of our own. We go to the Goldenrod, York Animal Kingdom, Sandy’s Purple Palace, the Nubble Light, Sweet Josie’s, and more. My children are grown with children of their own. We continue our annual tradition with the 5th generation, staying in a wonderful inn on the beach…  At 59, I have not missed a year, nor do I intend to!

Like Sandy, the Cute Potato team enjoys visiting the Nubble Light in York, especially for the wonderful foods nearby. We’re big fans of the old-fashioned ice cream at Brown’s, which was once lauded by Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry’s as his favorite ice cream shop in the country. Now that’s saying something!
