Maine Recap

I'm still coming down from such an epic adventure through Southern Maine.  Maine has been on my bucket list for quite a while now so I was so happy to explore, and obviously eat my weight in lobster, blueberries, and homemade ice cream.  

We left early Saturday morning and we were having lobster in Kittery by early afternoon.  We spent two nights in Ogunquit, exploring the neighboring towns including the Yorks, Wells, Kittery and Portsmouth NH.  Next we moved further north, stopping through Kennebunkport on our way inland to Lake Sebago where we spent two nights.  We returned to Portland for another two nights and then spent one night in Newport, RI to break up the drive on the way back.  It.Was.Perfect.

Our beautiful B&B in Ogunquit, the 2 Village Square Inn - Trip Advisor reviews were not lying about Bruce's homemade scones!!


Reflections reflections


The BEST pizza in Ogunquit - with lobster on top of course!
Walks along Marginal Way in Ogunquit

For a little brunch snack we stopped at the famous Wells Diner to try the lobster pie…..final verdict, while I can't argue with fresh lobster, butter, and Ritz crackers, I wouldn't come back for it.

Had to make a stop at what Food and Wine (and many others) claim to be the best lobster rolls in America!
An extremely rare blue lobster fresh off the boat!
One of the highlights of the trip were our 2 nights at Migis Lodge on Lake Sebago - it was so great it deserves it's own post, more to come!
Labor Day on the lake!
Pure bliss


Famous Maine whoopee pies from Two Fat Cats - I would say this is not the "best thing I ever ate" but still good
We hit all the antique stores along Route 1 from Kittery to Wiscasset and of course found a few treasures to bring home!
Another line, another "best" lobster roll
Mom's prized treasure - surprise surprise it's white!

A peak behind the gates at the Breakers mansion in Newport - so very Downton Abbey

Ice cream was an almost everyday occurrence; one of the best was Brickley's in Narragansett, RI, our last stop on the drive home.

There's so much more of Maine to explore (and lobster to be had), I can't wait to go back!  Stay tuned for more on our time at Migis Lodge as well as my take on the best lobster rolls!
