Saturday we toured around York and the neighboring towns, mostly on bike! It was so much fun, and just an abolutely perfect Fall day. Definitely what I pictured when I think of Maine in Autumn.

We continued on to the little town at York Beach for some apple cider to warm us up! I was having the best time taking pictures of everything we were passing. I could NOT get over how pretty the trees were!

We stopped at our second lunch of the day… Flo’s Hot Dogs! Yes, I said second lunch. The boys were adamant about trying these hot dogs, so there you go…two lunches.

we finally finished up our 15 mile(!) bike ride (although I keep saying it was 30 miles because that’s pretty much what it felt like :)) and drove over to the Stonewall Kitchen flagship store to reward ourselves for all our hard work!

the had samples of ALL their yummy goodies and we had a great time trying EVERYTHING 🙂

after our snack we went over to Portland, Maine for dinner. We drove through more gorgeous landscapes and houses, including the Bush Compound in Kennebunkport! Matt and I had driven by there before but it was a super-foggy day so it was cool seeing it in the sunshine…

We ate dinner at the Portland Lobster Co. for more lobster rolls, complete with lobster bibs!! I actually branched out and got lobster bisque and a salad but I tried some of Husby’s sandwich and it was amazing, of course!
