Elle and I got to visit Maine today! This was very exciting since neither one of us has ever been! Our event at the Shaw’s on Woodbury Ave. was great. The managers, Rick and Rick, were happy to have us and helped us set up right on the sidewalk. They even took pictures (which is great because usually the only pictures taken are by us Bella Girls).
We had a new Bella Girl in-training tonight. She was 3-year-old Kara and we knew she was a potential canidate when she approached the truck wearing bright pink with a sparkly crown in her curly brown hair and a big smile on her face. She loved the Blood Orange and almost immediately climbed into the truck to help us hand out samples. Her mother tried numerous times to tell her it was time to go but Kara refused to leave Penelope. We told her she’d have to live the rest of the summer in the truck with us and that she would miss her mommy, but she insisted she was ready! We told her to apply for the job in twenty years.
A wonderful couple had told us that in order to experience Maine we had to stop in a town called Kennebuckport. It happend to be the next town over from our last event. They were very right. We loved this charming water-front town. It was full of character, had lots of cute shops and restaurants serving top-quality seafood. Of course, being as it was our first time in Maine, we had to have Lobster. We went to this place called The Landing and sat on the upper deck overlooking the waterway. When the Lobster came out we had our bibs on, ready to go (oh yes, we were those classy people, not to mention we had already snapped photos all around the crowded restaurant). The waitress had to help us crack the lobster open the right way (I knew there was an art to it, I just wasn’t sure what it was..). We also learned there’s something called the “roe,” and not to eat that part because it’s where the eggs are? Anyway, the point is, everyday is a new adventure of the East Coast Bella Girls and we like to spread the joy of gelato happiness while experiencing everything each town has to offer. Thank you Maine for a great evening, we truely enjoyed it.
We are now on the road back to our hotel home in Boston (we’ve been in this hotel over a month now and the staff pretty much expects to see us every morning and night to get updates of our travels). So we will soon be seeing our good friends at the front desk and having a good nights sleep. Check back in with us on Thursday when we resume our events in the Boston area!
