Tips for the perfect camping trip! As Wayward Wanderers, we love camping! Camping in Maine is one of our favorite things to … Keep Reading
Did it take moving away from Maine to appreciate this beautiful state? Or is it the company I keep these days? Hmmm, I think perhaps both play a part in my enjoyment of vacationing in Maine. I love the coast of Maine and had no idea how much there was to explore! There is so much more beyond Old Orchard Beach and that scene! And now that I’m older, I realize it’s not all about baking on the beach.
Boothbay Harbor region… my boyfriend… his daughter… and this life I’m living now is where it’s at!
We were so happy to pull together this trip with Sarah before their family trip next month and the start of school. For those of you that know us, you know we are busy, busy, busy and already our summer is full. This past weekend was the ONLY weekend we had open. A quick search on Living Social and Groupon created a loose plan for our excursion up the coast of Maine.
There are no exceptions. EVERY time we travel, we use our iPhones and the apps listed here to make travel easy. Some save us time on the road and others save us money when we travel and still others give us a heads up on main attractions in the area. But they all give us peace of mind.
We use more apps than the ones listed below but these are the main ones we religiously use.
We hope they will make your traveling experiences easier in some way!
What better place to celebrate Independence Day than the “Live Free or Die” state? . Bill and I don’t need any help in doing so but the New Hampshire state slogan DEMANDS you to live free so what else can we do? Ah, another amazing weekend for us to do our thing…
Stonehenge is a fascination for many people and we are no different. So you can imagine our excitement when we saw a Living Social Deal for America’s Stonehenge in Salem, New Hampshire! And this weekend was a perfect opportunity for a day trip… or two.
Saturday we planned to do a few projects around the house and then head to Salem, New Hampshire, but by the time we got around to it, and realized we were starving, we ended up going for sandwiches instead. Not just sandwiches… they are the BEST SANDWICHES we’ve ever had! We discovered Bill Cahill’s Super Subs in Hudson, NH last Fall quite by accident. Driving by on our way to one of our favorite parks, we decided to try it. The place is tiny and looks a little run down but there was always so many vehicles there… now we know why. OMG! If you are ever in the area, stop in! You won’t be sorry! Here’s a hint – chicken salad… it is heaven on Earth!
Good friends, motorcycles, and ideal weather were the perfect trio for the first day of summer! We couldn’t have asked for a better time for our group loop through Southern New Hampshire and part of Vermont.
We all met at 10:00 am at the gas station near our house. Bill said it would have been a riot if we showed up on our bicycles. That joker! We should have done it! We started out with 7 motorcycles and 10 people. Not a bad turn out for our first outing of the summer!
Our first destination was Otterbrook Dam in Keene, New Hampshire but to get there you have to go through Peterborough. It brought back memories to Bill and I about when I was stung during our Memorial Day trip the month before and we joked about taking the group for a side trip to pick up more Balsamic Vinegar from our new favorite store in Peterborough. We resisted the urge to stop though and carried on to the dam. Just before we got there, we pulled over to use the facilities at a gas station only to find it closed. No problem… for the boys, that is! Us girls, though, exercised control and we all went on to the dam. Ha, not the best place to make a stop without using the potty… a lake full of water and a gushing dam… but it was a great stop! The view was beautiful and many had never been there before.
