We decided to do a spur of the moment weekend trip to Maine to catch the Fall foliage and sample the famous seafood.
I scored some cheap w/e special flights with Continental for $139 and rented a car from Hertz using a corporate discount for $35 per day. After touchdown in Portland on Saturday a.m. we headed 30 miles north to the historic old town of Bath. A tip from a review on tripadvisor about a coupon on roomsaver reduced the hotel price from $189 to $89.
We spent Saturday and most of Sunday exploring the picturesque coastal inlets before heading back to Portland for the night.
Food highlights included haddock chowder, wood oven roasted whole sea bass, oysters with cranberry and garlic mussels. Beer highlights included a mandatory stop at the Shipyard brewery with free samples. The IPA is a personal favorite.

I've added another 5 electronic bargains on eBay today so it remains to be seen if they'll be snapped up as quick as the iPhone. I somehow doubt it :-(
Update: I got busted by the eBay police / Apple for selling a fake iPhone I had picked up in China. They forcibly withdrew the item even though I only wanted $20 for it. I only managed to sell a camera for $25 - everything else went unwanted / unbid on :-((
meanwhile on eBay - WTF?
