Yeah I’m mixing my accents up there. My parents came up to Boston for a visit and the husband and I drove them up to Canada to visit some friends of theirs. We explored coastal Maine on the way back and stopped in Portland, Maine for 2 nights before continuing back home.
First stop: Deer Island, New Brunswick, Canada
6 – 3 pound lobsters with individual melted butter containers. Delicious.
I think there were things like potatoes and corn on the side – but I was distracted by the giant red bugs in front of me.
The couple we stayed with turned a bed and breakfast into their home – gorgeous house with a view of the ocean and the sunset!
Their doggy ROZ!
Second Stop: Acadia National Park
View from the restaurant Jordan Pond House where we had lunch with my friend Kim and her family, along with some absolutely amazing popovers!
Then we enjoyed a beautiful view of Cadillac Mountain and headed down along Route 1 to Portland.
Third Stop: Portland, Maine
We had dinner at The Green Elephant whichwas incredible. My carnivore dad even enjoyed the vegetarian options here.
I didn’t take pictures but we also went to Otto’s Pizza (try anything with roasted tomatoes!) and Gritty McDuff’s for some burgers and brewskies.
On the way back to Boston, we stopped in Ipswich at the Clam Box for one of their famous Native Clam Plates!
FINALLY, my parents took us out for a lovely 2nd wedding anniversary dinner to Tasca in Brighton, MA. I was too busy inhaling the food to take any pictures (plus it is very dark in there).
What a foodie vacation! I didn’t even mention the other eats such as fried clam strips, scallops, ribs, seasonal salads, and homemade ice cream. Time to go exercise!
