We went to California for 13 days over winter break and it just wasn’t long enough. We loved the dry, warm air and the ability to see so much in such a short amount of time. It’s hard to narrow down the top 5 places we visited during our trip but if I could only choose 5 places to visit in California, it would be these. Keep Reading
Wow! Did we pick the time to go to Hampton Beach in New Hampshire! Not only was it off season but it was the first snow of the year! Brrrr! But So. Much. Fun. If you haven’t stayed at the Ashworth by the Sea, DO IT! Some of the rooms, like the one we stayed in, are ocean side and the view is incredible, especially in the middle of a storm!
When we booked this room through Groupon, we were thinking, “The weather will still be warm so we’ll walk the beach, check out the few shops that will surely be open, swim in the pool and just relax…” Sure, great idea if Mother Nature hadn’t decided to interject. But she always has a way of shaping how our trips go. This was no different and I have to say…
It was even more fun than if we had done the predictable… Predictable is too boring for these Wayward Wanderers!
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.

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.
