A few weeks before Labor Day weekend, I told Mr. P that we were going on a trip. NO. MATTER. WHAT. I have felt like my entire summer consisted of gardening, working, exercising, and sleeping. What happened to the adventures? What happened to the travel?
Mr. P, Mizar, and my friend Jenn packed into my car and away we went to Maine. For a day trip. As someone from the West, I’m persistent that a 3 hour car journey one-way does not require an overnight stay. What can I say, I’m stubborn. :)
Cape Neddick Lighthouse or sometimes called the “Nubble Lighthouse” is located in York, Maine. In 1874 Congress appropriated $15,000 to build a light station at the “Nubble” and in 1879 construction began. Cape Neddick Light Station was dedicated by the U.S. Lighthouse Service and put into use in 1879. It is still in use today.
Be sure to visit Brown’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream. I had the one with peanut butter cups and I almost forgot to take a picture of it before it disappeared. YUM-O! Don’t forget the cash though. Credit cards are NOT accepted and something I’m learning is more common in small towns on the east coast! Also, if you can’t find parking, go to Brown’s first, grab some ice cream and walk on over. That’s what we did. :)
I was also determined to have an authentic lobster roll in Maine. More on that later…
What’s your favorite Maine destination? OR favorite ice cream flavor?
