Road Trip - Day 3 - New Hampshire to Maine

Before we knew it, it was time to say good-bye to our little lake hotel

And head back out on the road!!!!

We arrived right on the waterfront in downtown Portland, Maine.

And this is where we had a yummy, yummy lunch!!!

It was so fun to meet Matt, Lillian, Jackson, and Elise there for lunch. 

Then we hopped on a Harbor Crusie.  Jackson and Adam were so excited to be buddies!

Here we all are before the cruise started -- and before the rain started.

It wasn't too long before we were moved to the center, wrapped up in blankets and then a little later, we all went downstairs as it was POURING!

We got to see the Portland Head Light -- but the seas were too high 5-7 feet to make it all the way out to it.

This was a photo of a smaller boat navigating through the rain and seas.  It is hard to really get a feeling for how choppy and rainy it was from these photos!

But maybe this doppler of the area will convince you.  We are the boat located right in the center crosshairs and the read is heavy rain and the green is regular rain!

But that didn't stop the kids from having the chance to drive the boat!

We did see a baby seal!

By the evening the weather cleared and we drove to the Portland head light.  It was so beautiful there.

I'm just now getting to see this post and all the fun pictures. It was such a bonus to our vacation to get to spend a few hours with the Handy family. Adam could have spent the rest of the vacation with us and Jackson would have been in heaven. I love how well they get along. And I'm glad you got to stop by the Portland Head Light. It's so beautiful there, it's a must see when we go to Portland. Mmmm I'm thinking about lobster now.
