One of the items on our Spring Break Bucket list was "Maine".
We had originally planned to spend the night in Portland and do some exploring. But for budgeting reasons we decided (at the last minute) that a day trip would be smarter.
I spent a week in Kennebunkport when i was a young adult and I've thought about it ever since.
That was my first taste of New England and my first bite of a lobster roll.
Kennebunkport has always had a special place in my heart.
When we realized that we could make it there in less than 3 hours, we decided to go for it.
We basically drove all the way to Maine for a lobster roll.
Now, don't get me wrong. Getting ready for a spur-of-the-moment road trip is not fun in our house.
It isn't a sparkly, adventurous, bluebirds-from-snow-white type of thing.
But it's totally worth it.
We hit the road at about 9:30.
On the way to Maine we drove through Boston. My heart sank and my eyes were teary. I am so angry and so sad about what happened.
So I pray. And try to outshine the dark with my light. It's all I can do.
Before we knew it (okay, that's a lie. the trip was full of "are whe there yets", whining, potty breaks, and lucy repeatedly making me fetch her stuffed animal) we were there.
It's just as beautiful as I remember it.
We had to drive by The Colony. That's where I stayed last time I visited. SO pretty.
But we were on a mission. We went to find our lobster roll.
Mission accomplished! Chowdah and lobster rolls located.
SO GOOD. It is 7:30 in the morning as I write this and my mouth is watering. I'd totally have a lobster roll for breakfast.
Afterwards it was a quick stop at the windy, cold beach where these three crazies dipped their toes in the water.
And we had to stop by The Wedding Cake House for BB. It's her favorite.
Our last stop was at The Candy Man. You can't go to Maine and not eat lobster. And you certainly can't go to Maine without getting saltwater taffy.
And we headed back home.
On the way back through Boston I snapped this photo of The Greater Boston Food Bank.
Hope you are having a wonderful week. Today I think we are going to go to the Roger Williams Park Zoo.
Love to you all-
