“‘Someday’ happened.” — A sign above the garage of a home overlooking the Atlantic coast in York Harbor, Maine.
Have you been to coastal Maine before? It’s a beauty.
Last fall, my husband planned and booked a trip there for the two of us to celebrate our five-year anniversary. I’m not one to brag, but I have to say he scored prett-ay high in the husband and father categories last year. I’m a lucky lady.
We stayed in York Harbor, but by the end of our trip, had added 715 miles to our rental car’s odometer. Here is what we did…
The Stage Neck Inn bed and breakfast became our home base, and it sat right at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.
Maine and lighthouses go hand in hand, so we set out to find one. Erected in 1879, the “Nubble Light House” at Cape Neddick Light Station was no disappointment.
The Holy Donut served, in my opinion, the best donut I’ve tasted in my short life. They are made with real Maine potatoes, which are apparently the best things ever because these are the best things ever!
Lunch at Central Provisions.
When I found out the number one TripAdvisor restaurant in Portland was a gelato parlor, I was so there.
Iconic Portland Head Light.
Before driving back to our inn, we decided to hunt down another light house. Our target: Wood Island Lighthouse. On the way there, we stumbled upon our dream home.
The following day, we drove four hours to Acadia National Park, stopping along the way in Bar Harbor for food and to stretch our legs on the Shore Walk.
Bass Harbor Head Light is the only lighthouse on the island.
