Love those classic Maine Hunting shoes also known as Bean Boots. The canoe is a bit pricey for a new w/c boat, but doubtless it's made with a little extra care. 

Too bad I'll not get partake of the ice cream out here in Seattle.

I want to try some too. I heard they sold out the first batch already. Hopefully they'll be replenishing the stock.

I had a pair of those boots when I lived in New England.  I got them as a gift from a friend who bought them at the LL Bean store in Freeport.  With some sadness, I sold them after moving to CA, because I wasn't using them.  When I go to the Sierra I need a better grip (sole), and I certainly don't need boots like that around San Francisco.

IIRC, I sold the boots on eBay.  Maybe I should have eaten them instead.

I bought a pair of Bean Boots to wear on a film shoot on Kauai years ago. Mail ordered them over the phone and had them delivered to my hotel once I realized how bad the location was. Great for that kind of work under those conditions.

I had a scoop today. It was good, though it's hard to go wrong with brownies and caramel in ice cream.
Now that I'm looking at the picture I want more.
