First Time In Maine!

I have been to almost every state in our fine country. One state I had never been to was Maine. For some reason I felt a major draw towards Maine this summer and was destined to take a trip. I didn’t care if I had to go by myself…I was going to Maine!

I arrived at the Portland, Maine airport around 10:30 on Monday, August 9th. My parents were waiting to pick me up because they had already been traveling around Maine for a few days (it was my dad’s first visit too!). We headed straight for the hotel because we were all pretty tired!

We woke up at a decent hour on Tuesday morning and headed downstairs for breakfast. We shared a little bit of everything.

Coffee of course!

Red’s Eats – we didn’t stop here but I’m sure I’ve seen that shack on an episode of VendrTv. Does anyone else watch that??
