I love history, so New England is like Candyland for me. There is so much to see everywhere I look and so much of it has beautiful character and a story behind it.
So far, we've visited Portsmouth, New Hampshire...
|Love this old building and water view.
|Beautiful beaches in Kennebunkport. So much different than what I've seen in the South.
And Portland, Maine...
|Getting ready for dinner on the town!
|Riding bikes around Peaks Island, Maine, just a short ferry ride over from Portland.
|Gorgeous views on Peaks Island.
|Before dinner at The Lobster Shack overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
|Maine is beautiful!
I hope you've enjoyed this little taste of some of the sights in New England. I've seen so many gorgeous old homes too, but there's no way for me to take a picture that will do them justice. The character is evident in the neighborhoods and gardens and elaborate detail to the outside of the homes. I'm sure my husband is tired of me exclaiming at all the neat ones I see, but I can't help it! He'll just have to bear it for a few more days!
Until next time, I leave you with one I took for my mom who loves Queen Anne's lace...
|Along coast at Cape Elizabeth, Maine.
