In the fall of 2016 Anne and I traveled across the country to see an area we'd never been to, the New England states of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. What a trip! We arrived a little before the best of the fall color but it didn't deter us from enjoying the rugged coastline - some of it made the Big Sur coast look like a sandy beach - the friendly natives and, of course, the lobster. I had no idea that lobster could be eaten in so many ways. It's fun to simply tear into the thing with your bare hands but my favorite meal of all back there was the lobster mac and cheese. This takes taste to the next level and the next level beyond that. Wow!
Anne and I spent three weeks in New England staying for extended periods in Portland, and Bar Harbor, Maine and in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Day trips and harbor and river excursions took us to so many gorgeous places. Acadia National Park is a feast for the senses and is both rugged and intimate. The little out-of-the-way lobster pounds as they're called let us taste the freshest of the fresh.
I've put up two galleries for this trip. One showing a few of the unique lighthouses we encountered and a larger gallery that shares some of the other surprises and memory treasures we found on our journey. Please enjoy.
