Final Dash

July 12, 2019

For Tom’s final day we thought we’d do a quick tour of the highlights of NYC he hadn’t made it to yet.

Hudson yards & a walk along the High Line

Today we headed to Vermont, whilst we didn’t take too many pictures of the stunning landscape…

The hunt for Maine’s best Lobster roll

July 9, 2019

Today we headed to a little fishing village north of Portland – Boothbay Lobster Wharf – to hunt down the best lobster roll in Maine

with little stops along the way at beautiful look outs and parks along the route

and curious sights out the window of Giant things
(another country with a fascination for large things)

Including the home of LL Bean

Home for quiet time, before heading out in the evening in down town Portland 🙂

Lighthouses & Sea shores

July 8, 2019

After a breakfast of doughnuts (don’t tell Aunty Cinty!)

Today we explored a little further out & around Portland waterfront – from the lighthouse in the south

a stop at the town’s best Lobster roll truck for lunch
(although some had grilled cheese!!!)

to a beautiful park in the north

Then back into town for dinner in the evening 🙂

To Maine

July 7, 2019

Today we headed up to Portland Maine 🙂

a little relaxed wandering around the area

finishing with fish & chips / burgers for dinner, and an ice-cream stop for dessert 🙂 Yum!

(we forgot to take photos of our stops along the way and our waterfront walk that afternoon. Or at least I did)

A quiet day

July 6, 2019

A quiet day to recover from our late night at the Mets and a busy week

but not too quiet that we couldn’t fit in Tiff’s, Lach’s favourite restaurant that he wanted to take Tom too. After a strong recommendation on how good the burgers and ribs were, Tom branched out and ordered the chicken + waffles (which looked really good too!)
