… Maine, that is.
Honestly, it was a miracle I was able to pare down the photos to a non-obnoxious amount, because that place is a stunner. I’d be lying if I said I expected nothing less. When it comes to Maine, I just assumed it would be beautiful. Luckily, my assumption was correct. Last weekend, I had the chance to escape our home renovations (I was starting to get grumpy) for a getaway to celebrate one of my best friends and her upcoming wedding. I wasn’t lying about the whole “less than average height” part.↑
Although we only spent a few short days in Maine, in that time we were able to …
… eat our weight in lobster – especially during our day trip to Red’s Eats (world famous) in the cutest little town … … or really, just eat and drink our way through the weekend.
Sidenote: we went to Eventide Oyster Co. at the recommendation of others and it was fantastic. The food and drink was amazing. Their brown butter lobster roll (see what I mean about eating all that lobster?) was a delicious take on the classic. Highly recommend it!
The blueberry pie was not from Eventide, but for someone who’s not really a pie person, Maine blueberries sure made me rethink my opinion!
Oh, and we had our fair share of wine too … as if that’s shocking news. Perhaps my favorite event of the entire weekend was the sunset wine tasting sail. The views were breathtaking. Sailing the Casco Bay, wine or no wine (though I prefer the former), is worth doing when you’re in Portland. Especially, when surrounded by great friends … … just as long as their glass is full. ↓ 🙂 It was incredibly fun to escape for a few days and take in all Maine has to offer. Now, to just make a trip there again with Jeff in tow – I’m certain between the microbreweries and the food – he would love it.
