On the last weekend of September Greg and I took a drive up to Portland, Maine for the weekend to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. Our first order of business was, of course, finding Lobster rolls. If I had one goal for the weekend it was definitely to eat as much lobster as I could. Needles to say - I achieved that goal. Our first Lobster Roll of the trip to kick it all off was at Portland Lobster Company located in Old Port. Old Portland is honestly one of the cutest cities I have been to. It still has the cobble stone streets and architecture you can imagine has been there from the beginning. Walking around in the crisp New England air was so nice. The streets were not as crowded, the shops were small and quaint and there was coffee everywhere (yay!). It was the last week of September so there was a nice coolness to the air. We walked around and checked out Shipyard Brewery which was very cool and ended the night at a very yummy restaurant called Street & Co. The next day we woke up bright and early to get some breakfast at Becky's Diner and once our tummys were full we went to Cape Elizabeth and spent the day walking around the shore. Hiked a bit and went down to Rising Tide brewery where we played some corn hole and had great conversation with my cousin who came down from Bangor. We LOVED Portland. It was just our pace and so so pretty. We definitely can't wait to go back.
Here are some of my favorite memories from our little weekend getaway.
I Honestly think Portland was made for Greg. Not only is it such a foodie city - it has so many shops he loves. He was going nuts !
