This week on the blog, we’re starting things off with a bang with why traveling to Maine was so much fun and is such a great destination!
Why Everyone Should Travel to Maine
Each year my husband and I attend the IIABO Conference for basketball officials, each time in a different location. It’s great fun seeing everyone year to year and the places we’ve gotten to visit are awesome! Maine was no exception! Can you say ‘lobster roll’? So delicous!
One of our first stops when visiting Maine is to find the best Lobster Rolls and Oysters!
High Roller Lobster did not disappoint!
The pink lighting and atmosphere had such a fun vibe to this casual restaurant!
According to Culture Trip here are the top 10 reasons to travel to Maine!
While Andrew was busy with meetings during the day, I got busy finding thrift and antique shops in and around Portland!
A big thank you to Ann from Dabbling and Decorating who gave me some great shopping locations!
If you look close, you can see the sweetest little brass jar. I regret not bringing it home with me!
As most of you are probably aware, I love the thrill of the hunt when it comes to antiques. You never know what you might find!
These are the vintage treasures I brought home from this trip!
At this particular booth I met the loveliest older couple. We chatted for the longest time, when I found out I purchased two of his most favorite teacups!
The Most Informative Gardening Class
Stopping at my Aunt Connie & Uncle Peter’s house is a must if I am heading in the direction of Massachusetts! We spent the best time with them in the afternoon and learned so much about gardening from ” Mr. Greenjeans’ as my aunt calls him! I could easily go rambling on and on about how much we love these two fabulous human beings!
My uncle is a master gardener with a large grape arbor, while my aunt does all the canning! And, yes, we came home with many goodies! Have you ever tasted homemade wine?
Homemade wine, garlic and vegetables that we brought home with us!
