Our 1st Wedding Anniversary

IMG_3931, originally uploaded by dynamicsubspace.

Y and I spent our first wedding anniversary in Portland, Maine recently. It was a low budget, extremely fun getaway for both of us.

We enjoyed the fresh lobster and sea food just before the season ended for some of the restaurants in the area such as the Portland Lobster Co., and we had a lovely dinner at Dimillo’s Floating Restaurant. Also, I had the best damn pizza EVER from the Portland Pie Co (it’s called the Moosehead–perfect for satiating a post-swim appetite). We enjoyed some damn good Japanese cooking and sushi at Yosaku. We even walked across town in the freezing cold to Whole Foods for our anniversary dessert!

I got to photograph a lot of local architecture (click the image above to find the full set of photos on Flickr), and we toured a preserved Victorian house on the West side of downtown Portland. On the morning of our last day there, we walked along the shoreline next to the narrow gauge railroad.

This was my second time in Portland. Originally, I went there for the 2007 SLSA conference where I presented on a panel with Andrew Pilsch and Chris Van Acker. I had met Y at that time, but it would take a little while longer before things turned around for the better for us both. I’m glad that we were able to spend our first anniversary in such a cozy New England town. Now, we have to begin saving for our next anniversary.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
