Portland, Maine Vacation. One day, The Gent says to me, “Hey, pick a place where you want to go for vacation and we’ll go.” Well, we both decided that we’d like to visit the New England part of the country. We pinpointed Portland, Maine to be exact.
Portland, Maine Vacation
We spent a week in Portland and surrounding areas. We stayed in Portland but drove down to Ogunquit and Kennebunkport for a day or two. We took several boat tours in both Portland and Ogunquit. On our last day in Portland, we decided to go on a trolley tour as well.
My favorite boat tour was the mail run ferry route. It is how all the islanders get their mail, groceries, and other things they need and obviously how they get back and forth from their home on the island to the mainland. They even load up their kids on the ferry and send them on their way into Portland for school at 0600 in the morning.
The other favorite boat “tour” was the Lucky Catch tour. We got to don fisherman aprons and go lobstering! We pulled traps and learned all about lobsters. After pulling a few we even picked some out for dinner.
Here are a few photos from our Portland, Maine vacation. Some photos were taken in Portland and some were in Ogunquit and some in Kennebunkport.
