Destination Unknown

I’ve known for a few weeks now that Capt had a big surprise Columbus Day weekend getaway planned for me and him.



The only clue I had was that we were not taking a plane to get there.


Since we were driving to our destination I figured the climate wouldn’t be too different.


It had been forecasted that the weather in NY and CT will be in the upper 80's, low 90's for the weekend, so I packed up summer-ish clothes. I also packed my bathing suit, just in case.


After his son’s baseball game on Saturday we started heading North. And we didn’t stop talking until we reached here some 5 hours later:

In Boothbay, Maine.


MAINE. Where it's cold. And near Canada.
We ate lots of these :



And they sure do taste fresher than NY lobstas.

And we ate lots of these



And we talked. Lots. Of. Non-stop. Talking.

And the foliage, there was aplenty.


Amazingly beautiful.
What a wonderful surprise and what a wonderful man... still after 3 years.

I've been to CT once when my hubby was taking frequent trips up that way. Beautiful, and I do mean beautiful country!

He definitely sounds like a keeper. I'm glad you had such a wonderful time.
