Our last full day of our trip was spent driving to Maine so that Jeremiah and Tony could have Maine lobster for dinner. How does Maine lobster vary from the other 500 states we were in on this trip? Good question. The travel to get there was fun, none the less.
Before we could head north to Lobster Land, we made a day trip out of Boston. The Sharpes signed us up for the Duck Tour of Boston. You start the tour aboard a Jeep/Van/Bus that drives you to various points of interest before turning into a boat and entering the water. No joke! Check it out:
It is quite the rave in ol’ Boston. Here’s some pics I got while aboard the jolly ship thing.
After eating lunch, we jumped back in the car to head north. Here are some state signs I missed posting previously and the one for Maine.
Tony and Jeremiah had researched online and mapquested our way to a lobster shack in Ogunquit, Maine. It was a great town right on the coast. The people that live there said they are only there for the summer due to brutal winters. I fell in love with the little spec of a town.
Jeremiah and Tony were in heaven. My favorite part was the family owned candy store. Yum!
We headed back to the homestead. It was such a peaceful place. It was sad to think about returning to our everyday grind.
Day Seven was spent in the airport WAITING. Our flight was denied the ability to fly into Newark. It was rescheduled so many times. We even boarded the plane for awhile just to be told that the flight was cancelled. We ended up changing our whole flightplan and barely got home in time to see the kids before bed. It was, by far, the worst day of the trip. Seeing the kids was worth all the headaches.
Thanks, Sharpes, for a great vacation. I’m so glad we took you up on your offer to visit.
