A blog about fun stuff!

Portland, Maine lighthouse

The weather has finally cooled down here in California!  Phew…..Don’t get me wrong I LUV summer but I’m looking forward to the lower electric bills.

I’m reflecting about our trip to Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island last October.  We had such a great experience!  I should tell you that my fellow travelers were my Mom and her forever friend, Carol.  We went to Martha’s Vineyard,  stayed in Cape Cod, stayed in Boston (of which we didn’t see that much because we got into the city too late in the evening).  I guess that’ll be for another trip.   The three of us just did whatever came our way!  One of our favorite highlights of the trip was the Portland Headlight (lighthouse)!  One of the locals asked if we had visited it yet and said it would be worth if for sure.  She was right.  A definite tourist attraction.  Easy to get to, 10 minutes from downtown Portland, Maine and easy parking.   A nice path runs along the top of the ocean side cliff and makes for a great walk to absorb the sea breeze and beautiful scenery.  The lighthouse is immaculately cared for.  Donations are taken to maintain the integrity.  This is the most photographed lighthouse there is.  For a small fee one can take a tour up into the tower.

I highly recommend a visit to Portland, Maine!  I ate my first lobster!  His name was Larry and now I’m spoiled on freshly caught, Maine lobster!  Ha ha!  Beautiful city with cobblestone streets, lots of craft breweries, and what colorful adorable store fronts.   No vacancies in this waterfront area.  Every shop was full and unique!

Daisy (my Mama) and Lucy (Carol) were great travelers!  I’m so glad they have been willing to let me plan another fall trip!  Hopefully we’ll have better luck with the fall foliage.  We were a little early last year.  And a little bird has said we might be a little late this year….hopefully we won’t miss the pretty colors.

So, in 3 weeks off to Michigan we go!
