An Anniversary Road Trip

Last summer my husband and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary by renting a car and exploring the coast of Maine. We had a fab time driving along the coast, staying at cute Bed & Breakfast's, eating fresh seafood and enjoying time together.

There's just something about exploring the country by car that is so fun! You can take the back roads if you want, or cruise along at top speed on the interstate. You can throw your luggage in the trunk and just move along to your next destination. You don't have to remove your shoes to get through airport security, instead you remove them to stick your feet in the sand of some beach you discovered. I find it freeing and spontaneous. I hope to take many more road trips to explore the country.

I'd like to share some of the sights we saw from our rental car last summer.

One of the first things we ran into was this intersection. I think there were 5 or 6 streets all coming together here. I looked at the stoplights and thought....this is crazy!



We drove across this bridge, which truly made me feel small.



Of course we stopped at a drive-in! This one was a classic. You flashed your lights to get the waitresses attention and they brought the food out on the tray that hooks to your window. We were loving it! Plus it was called Fat Boy, which we thought was hilarious!



We even drove up and down a mountain; Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park.



We ended our week long road trip by heading in to Boston to visit some friends.




It really was an excellent anniversary. Not sure yet what we'll do to top it, but I'm sure we'll think of something!

My family rented a mini van on our last vacation thinking that the sightseeing would be fantastic. It turned out really bad. My kids were tired and restless. So lesson learned was road trip with young kids = not a good idea. Glad you had a blast with yours though.
