First stop, Portland, Maine. If anyone has been thinking about visiting this town, don't second guess it, do it. We all loved Portland. It's a smaller city with many quaint shops in the Old Port section of town. We found a great coffee shop, Mornings in Paris, that we visited both days we were there. We took a tour of the harbor by boat and I discovered I have no sea legs. Aside from that our time was spent eating lobster as many ways as we could and shopping.
Our next stop was to Bar Harbor for one night at a bed and breakfast. After having to share a double bed for two nights, Sean said about the two twin beds awaiting them, "Tonight, we sleep like kings." Where does he get this stuff? Yes, I was a bit worried about a 15 and 13 year old in a B&B. They were given specific instructions, that's for sure.
I was hoping to hunt for sea glass during low tide to use in some jewelry but I wasn't up to it right when we got there and I didn't want to get out of bed that early to look the next day. Next time, I guess. We walked around the harbor, poked about in the stores and had dinner. The next morning we had a delicious breakfast of blueberry and cream cheese stuffed French Toast with blueberry sauce and then it was off to Bangor for the concert.

Hope you're able to take a trip to Maine sometime. We're hoping we'll get back there some day.
