After stops at the Derry post office and the Portsmouth Wal-Mart to buy Thatcher new clothes after he got car sick, we were on our way to Portland. I have never been to Maine. Maine is the 2nd new state I have visited this trip. The first stop in Maine was the Cape Elizabeth lighthouse. I love lighthouses. I was so excited. I was not disappointed. Cape Elizabeth has a beautiful lighthouse. Of course, I took pictures from different angles.
Then, I took some of the water and shore, too
The drive into Portland was short. Our main goal was lunch. We were hungry. Since it was a perfect day,there were a lot of people out and about in Portland and most places had a line, even though it was after 1:00. We chose J's Oysters, mostly because it had the shortest line. We looked at the menu while we waited. We were ready to order as soon as we were seated. I had a cup of clam chowder and a lobster roll. The lobster roll had a very generous portion of lobster.
I think the day can best be described by the following picture taken while we were at the lighthouse.
I would also add and thank you for this time with my family.
