Portland and Coastal Maine – Americana, Sea Coasts and Seafooc

We knew going in that Portland ME was a quaint up and coming town. We didn’t know how much we would love it! So much charm, and an unbelieveable food scene from world class sushi to the freshest seafood and craft beer anywhere. It was a great couple days.

Wanting to see a local landmark, we realized our visit coincided with an annual charity benefit from local brewery Alagash. Oysters on the grill, al pastor tacos and a other delicious snacks. What a great way to see the Mansion!

Cheers to Alagash for the party, great brewery as well!

Beautiful summer days. Strawberries are in full bloom and we stumble upon a Strawberry festival. Buying several pounds from the overloaded farms.              We were on our way to see one of the many spectacular coastline views of Maine!

Lighthouses were a must in this unforgiving landscape.

 

Miyake sushi was an out of this world experience. Omakase with Kristin opting for the non-sushi route and Dan headed for sushi. Grilled fish head?

Locally caught Giant Blue Fin Tuna and local Eel. Life changing.

Heading to Arcadia National Park and Bar Harbor, we stopped for lunch in Camden. Classic America.

Views of the hike in Arcadia.

Our way down found us in some really cool slot canyons!

We found our way to a lobsta pot for dinner.

Basically a local fisherman runs a small shack serving the days catch of lobsters, mussels, clams and corn.

Dan had to order a 2nd “dessert” lobster cause he was in love.

What a way to end the solo portion of our trip. Great food and a very relaxing but engaging couple of days on America’s north coast. We loved it, enjoyin spectacular views like this sunset over a wild mussel patch.

We finished the trip with a couple days with our family in Waterford. Enjoying a classic Americana 4th of July. Sharing the parade and treats with our loved ones!Catching some sunset views of the loons on the lake.
