Our New England Vacation - Part 1

A few weeks ago my husband and I embarked on our summer vacation. This year we planned on some stops in New England, with Boston, MA being our starting and ending point. Neither of us had been in that area before, so we were really looking forward to seeing a new part of the U.S.

Our early morning flight allowed us to see the sun rise over the mountains while leaving Asheville, NC.

It seemed in no time we landed in Boston. We rented our car, then drove 3 1/2 hours north and stopped for the night in Camden, ME. Taking our time getting there, we were loving the scenery we found on our drive up. We arrived in Camden late afternoon, so after we checked in we made the quick walk to their charming historical town and found a nice restaurant on the waterfront to eat and have a nice glass of wine. After a long day of travel it was the perfect ending to the day.

The next morning we discovered it had rained overnight. After our scrumptious breakfast at the B&B we stayed in, we decided to wander back to town to discover all the little shops that were closed the night before. It was wet, and very overcast but not actually raining so it was perfect for a lazy morning.

We said good morning to Annabelle, the inn’s Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix and headed out.

I adore quaint little towns and all their charms! This one had a bonus waterfront and I even found a waterfall!

After a quick lunch, the weather was starting to clear and it was time to make our way a little further north to our second destination, Bar Harbor, ME. But first, we crossed through the waterfront park and spotted these cuties. If anyone recognizes the black bird, let me know. The other is juvenile cedar waxwing.

Somewhere along the way north we came upon this pretty bridge. I pulled over to get a photo just before we crossed it.

That was pretty much our adventures for our first day and a half. Stay tuned for Part 2 where I share some images from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Forest.
