Lobster, blueberries, lobster, blueberries, lobster…it’s tough to find a salad around here! We have had surf & turf, lobster mac & cheese, and lobster roll, and blueberry muffins, blueberry wine, blueberry beer (!), fresh blueberries, blueberry cobbler, and blueberry pie! Maine potatoes are apparently fairly famous also, but the only potato thing we tried was french fries. We saw chocolate-covered potato chips (ugh) but didn’t eat any.
Tonight we’re in York, in an inland Best Western, because Amex didn’t show me any of the beautiful coastal inns when I booked the trip. We’re having some down time; this was not a location we had wanted to consider, but it was a good stopover point between Portland and Boston, so we booked it. Did some laundry, picked up some groceries. Found a restaurant with salads 🙂 Tomorrow we’ll be driving to Portsmouth, NH, to spend some sightseeing time.
Last night we took the Maine Brew Bus tour. The bus takes participants to two breweries and a distillery in Portland. I didn’t drink much (and you probably all remember how badly spirits affect me), but Chris had a ball. I enjoyed it from the educational aspect, learning about the breweries and the Portland area, and of course it was great to have someone else doing the driving for a while.
We’re here until Sunday morning, when we head off to Boston. This is the Nubble Lighthouse (technically called the Cape Neddick Light). It was cut off by the tide so this was as close as we could get.
