[ boothbay harbor ]

AS PROMISED, here's a little peek at what we saw on our trip {it's taken a while ~ I took way too many pics!}

I'm sure most of you know that Maine is known for its lobster and everywhere we turned, there they were...


Of course I wanted to try a lobster roll and heard that Red's Eats in Wiscasset was world-famous for them {and after waiting in line for well over an hour with no sunscreen, I looked like a lobster!}


Verdict? hmmm... ok, but kind of bland ~ not really crazy-good to make it worth the wait {maybe better luck somewhere else}...



Boothbay Harbor is filled to the brim with cuteness ~ shops, signs, homes...




and along with lobster, it was blueberry season ~ blueberry buckle, pancakes, pie, cake, ice cream, syrup...



We saw the cutest tiny seaside cottages...



and some pretty big ones too...


A walk along Ocean Point had incredible views...



and after all that exploring ~ time for a bite from the general store...



We went on a boat tour of the islands and saw so many cute lighthouses and boats...



A swing bridge let us through...




And when we had had our fill of seafood, a lovely Italian dinner on a terrace...



So, what did I buy? Well, it had to fit into my suitcase and not exceed my baggage allowance...

some perfect beach house art...



and of course a lobster buoy!



Well, that's it! Our trip to Maine in a nutshell! Of all the travelling we have done, it was definitely one of the best trips ever. Thanks for following along!

So much charm and of course the gorgeous water. Looks dreamy! That is a bummer that the lobster roll wasn't better. Glad you had a wonderful trip!

I told my husband I have a total hankering for going to New England this fall to photograph it. I haven't been there in over 15 years, but I loved my visit before. Love your purchases! I'm sure it looks great in your pad :)

I was in Maine years ago with my best friend, absolutely loved it. We stayed at the Keyes Cottages - an amazing little coveside cottage run by an 84 year old man at the time! HAHA!!! Apparently he is STILL THERE! Must be close to 90 now. Great pictures!
