Out and About: Lobster Shack and Sea Glass in Maine

Our final day in Maine we decided to head back towards Portland for the day, specifically to a restaurant in Cape Elizabeth called The Lobster Shack.

Out and About: York, Maine

I’m embarrassed to admit visiting York wasn’t part of the original plan for this vacation.  I did a ridiculous amount of (Pinterest) research for months before I actually left and I think the only thing I remembered about York was a wobbly bridge.

Out and About: Lake Guntersville

I still don’t have a camper.  A few plans have changed though getting one remains on my radar.  In the meantime, this week some friends who do have a camper graciously invited me to spend some time with them at Lake Guntersville State Park.  Of course, I jumped at the offer.  A chance to experience camper living […]
