on sunday we woke up bright and early ready for a few last adventures before heading home. we decided to check out some of York’s main attractions: the Cliff Path and the Wiggly Bridge. The weather was absolutely lovely and the view of the beach from the hotel was picture-perfect…

after getting bad directions from quite a few people in town, we finally found the Wiggly Bridge! SO little and SO cute! 🙂

Checking that off the list, we headed to the Cliff Path to walk along the coastline. I thought it was beautiful and I loved being out in the fresh air walking through nature!

when we saw this sign, we knew exactly what we were having for lunch… you guessed it…lobster rolls! we were SO glad we came on the last weekend of the season because A. the food was cheaper and B. if we had missed out with all these places being closed we would have been SO sad!

at that point it was time to head back to Boston for M & S to catch their flight. But we decided to stop in Portsmouth, NH so we could say we had been there!

Portsmouth, NH…check! On to Boston!

It was just SUCH a pretty day so we drove into Boston for a few minutes (and a little ice cream) before taking them to the airport. I grabbed a few last minute shots as we drove around the city…

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!
