Part Four: Bay Leaf Cottages
After a long weekend exploring Maine, it was time to head west.
Our flight wasn't until Tuesday evening, but we weren't sure how long it would take to drive to Boston on a weekday, gas the car, return the car, ride the shuttle, shuffle things in our luggage and get through security. We left in the late morning and took our time driving down.
Hot weather + road trip = cherry/Coke Froster from Circle K. That huge thing was just 75 cents, including tax!
We stopped for lunch in the other Portland. (The whole trip, it was really weird to tell people we were from Portland... Portland, Oregon. They seemed a little confused and unsure what we were talking about.)
We parked at Eastern Prom Park on Casco Bay for a little walk. I had to put my feet in the East Coast water.
We walked a couple very hot miles along a bike/running path to stretch our legs and see the sights.
On our way out of town, we stopped at a Mexican restaurant for more not-spicy food. It was excellent - very flavorful!
But we thought it was really funny that there weren't any Hispanic people working there - just a bunch of white hipsters :)
Before getting back to the airport, we had to give in and get some Dunkin' Donuts! We'd seen them everywhere throughout our trip but had resisted the temptation. Brad got a Boston Kreme and I got the Glazed Chocolate Cake Stick:
Whoa. That was GOOD!
It was a short but packed trip to explore a new place - a place very dear to a very dear friend, and that made it even more special! And I'm so glad we had the chance to go celebrate with Sarah and Joel :)
