Feeling hot, hot, hot!

I got the pictures to work!!! Here’s a recap of our road trip up to Maine!

Saturday was spent on the road, but we finally arrived at the lake late that evening. Unfortunately the AC in our jeep decided it was done working,and it was about 95 degrees out the whole time. Needless to say, we were really hot.

We had plenty of snacks for the ride

but planned to stop for a late lunch in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We hit insane traffic in Massechusetts though, so didn’t get to Portsmouth until 3:30. We were crazy hungry and more than ready to get out of the car and into some AC.

We ate at Poco Bow Street Cantina, which sits right on the water. I had a Smuttynose (local brewery) Shoals Pale Ale and Joe had his favorite, Old Brown dog.

Then we split two entrees which were both SO good. The blackened red snapper tacos and the lobster, avacado, mango salad with lime vinagrette dressing. Holy yum!!!

Neither of us were in a hurry to get back in the car, so we walked around for a bit. If you ever have a chance to come to Portsmouth, you should; it’s a really cool place.

If you’re a “man vs. food” fan- Adam visited here!

Before heading out, we stopped at the Smuttynose Brewery where I tried to get Joe to buy this racing jersey.

Eventually we got back on the road and drove fairly smoothly the rest of the way north. We stopped once for gas and coffee (+ ice cream), and I made friends with a moose :).

We got to the house around 11:30 and everyone was asleep already, so we decided instead of showering off our day of car sweating, we would just go jump in the lake! After a quick night swim, we hopped into bed and immidiately passed out.

More excitement to come!

Has anyone seen a real moose before? It’s been a few years since I have, but they  are pretty huge and impressive!!
