Have you ever been to Maine? Man, it is so beautiful. Jeremy and I headed up to the Moose state for our anniversary, and let me tell you that we were not disappointed.
We flew in to Boston, and then rented a car. Did you know it’s only about an 1 1/2 hours away from Boston? I mean, we couldn’t not go up there, because it was just too close to not head up there and spend a few days.
Did I like it? No. I loved it. And so did Jeremy. He really wanted to see a moose, but sadly none showed themselves.
On Saturday, once we got out of Boston, we decided to stop in Ogunquit, ME. I really wanted to see Ogunquit again, and it was on our way to the house we were staying at. And the weather decided to be nice and not rainy.
I can’t even tell you how amazing it was to get down on the rocks and take pictures. Everything just looked so beautiful down there. I love Ogunquit because they have a Marginal Walkway that you walk along the beautiful coastline. Hence where these pictures were taken. We walked down until the end, and then turned around after dinner and headed back to our car…and it was so cold we had to turn the heat on in the car!
After our stop at Ogunquit, we headed to Saco where we rented a studio apartment. We used Airbnb and it was another wonderful experience! Our house was perfect for us and everything we could have asked for.
Jeremy chose Saco, Maine because he knew that it was between Ogunquit and Portland. It was such a cute town and one that I wanted to spend a little bit more time in. It was close to the water (we could go down the road about 5 minutes and be at the beach) and had such lovely people up there.
We stayed in this lovely little studio apartment that was next to a house. The host, Nicole, was amazing and so accommodating. I loved meeting her and staying in her studio. It was perfect for us and much less expensive than we found in Ogunquit or Portland. It was just perfect.
We spent our actual anniversary up in Portland, and it was perfect. Sadly, I don’t have many pictures of it, except for the obligatory Anniversary dessert picture. Jeremy surprised me with picking the restaurant we had dinner at, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Our waitress was interesting, but besides that, it was so much fun.
Would you go and travel to Maine?
