10 Days in Maine

It’s a family tradition. Every year, around the Fourth of July, we head to Maine to visit my grandparents. I look forward to this trip every year. However, this year’s trip held a special place in my heart. I will have to wait two years to set foot in the great state of Maine again as I will be in Malaysia next July. Until then, I’ll have these photographs to remind me of the journey.

As they say on the East Coast: “Fresh Lobstah.”
As an educator, I have a special adoration for Boston and its rich history.

In addition to outstanding seafood, Freeport is also known as the headquarters for L.L. Bean. Check out their Boston Red Sox Bean Bootmobile.

One last look across the lake before heading back to Colorado. I’ll have to wait two years before I’ll be back on this dock.
