A Day Trip to Boston



On our way back home on our summer New England trip, we had a day in Boston. After traveling for over 10 days, we were tired and just wanted to take it easy on the last day of our trip.

We can't get enough of summer hiking in Maine! The weather is perfect hiking weather, and it's such a great healthy family activity.

A trip out on the Lazy Jack II Schooner

We've read Carry On, Mr. Bowditch several times, so when we had the chance to go out on a schooner we didn't let it pass.

A schooner is simply any sailing ship with two or more masts. A ship with one mast is called a sloop.

Day Trip to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine

It was too cold to go to the beach or hike up in the mountains, so we headed to Acadia National Park. We'd heard so much about it, that we just knew it would be worth the 2 hour drive from where we were staying. And it was, but not in the way we were imagining.

I'll lead you on a photo journey of our day trip to Acadia National Park and dinner in Bar Harbor.

Hiking the hills of Maine

We'd heard about how fun Camden, Maine was. Several people had encouraged us to go. But I was still taken aback by its beauty!

One afternoon of our time there we decided to go for a hike. Trip Advisor pointed us to Camden Hills State Park. We took the beautiful drive to the top of Mount Battie. The views of Penobscot Bay and the surrounding areas are just spectacular from the top of the mountain.

Two days in Boston


We took a trip to New England this summer to escape the August heat of Nashville.

Flying into Boston, we started our trip with a day in the big city. First we needed to find some lunch! With the help of Yelp we discovered Souper Roll Up Cafe in Cambridge. There we ate delicious soup, wraps, and sandwiches served to us by the owner. It's a small shop and our order came out quickly.
