Spring in OOB – Part II
With the help of my driver (aka Raina, my loving wife!), I was able to venture out into the sunshine and around town. Thanks to the great weather we’ve been having, life has returned to Old Orchard Beach a little early. Several local seasonal business have already opened and more plan on opening this weekend. People were out on the beach, venturing in to the shops, and of course, standing in line for Original Pier Fries with vinegar! This is the second installment of this project. I hope you enjoy what you see and please feel free to comment below. I really do value any and all feedback.

Nothing a fresh coat of paint can’t handle!
I can taste the homemade fried chicken basket already!

What you don’t see is that she’s talking to my wife just out of the frame. Not sure what they were discussing, but I love the animation in her face
