It's been really, really hot here lately. So of course we've been thinking of going someplace a little cooler for a quick trip. Naturally, I thought of Maine. (This obviously isn't a surprise if you know me.)
I was going through some photos on our computer and found some of my favorites from our last trip to Acadia. This one is from a slightly foggy day which happened to be our anniversary.
We considered going back to Acadia National Park, but have never gone in the summer months and were a little worried that it would be super crowded. When we go in the end of September, it's perfect. The days aren't (usually) sweltering and the trails and beaches aren't packed. On our honeymoon (to Acadia, of course!), we had discussed coming back and had said we would on our 5 year anniversary. Well, we ended up going on our 4th anniversary instead. We'll be skipping Acadia this year as I'll be starting a new job in the middle of August. However, we wanted to fit in a summer trip before I started.
Instead, we're going to our second favorite place(s) - Portsmouth, NH and the Portland area. This trip will mark our 6th trip to Maine in the last 6 years. We like Maine the best for its natural beauty, but we are so excited to go back to one of our favorite shops anywhere- Daytrip Society and Daytrip Society Jr. Can't wait.
