The first stop on our road trip was to Portland, Maine. The main reason was to visit a cousin of Richard’s and his wife (Ashley and Sarah). We had a lovely day with them and it was wonderful getting to know them (the kids and I had never met Richard’s cousin and none of us had met his wife). Hopefully we can do it a again soon either in Maine or NYC!
We started off the day with a yummy breakfast of French toast, bacon and scrambled eggs. We were very spoiled by Ashley and Sarah.
Ashley and Sarah then took us for a walking tour around Portland, which is a beautiful city.
As we were in Maine it was decided that we needed to buy lobsters to enjoy for lunch. We went into a lobster pound and bought some and Ashley and Sarah cooked them along with some yummy beans, baked beans and apple crisp (apple crumble).
One of the coolest things we saw is a Tate Street! We had to take a photo of Tate at Tate street! I looked up a Knox street but the closest one was in another town and not a town worth going to as a tourist!
And now for a random cute photo or two…..
