A Weekend In and Around Freeport, Maine

A couple of weeks ago, we decided to take a long weekend and getaway.  No laundry, no vacuuming, no cooking- just early bedtimes, long car rides, and lots of togetherness.  It was lovely.

We shacked up in the Holiday Inn Express in Freeport, ME and spent entirely too much time touring all of the L.L. Bean stores.  The wee one enjoyed watching the fish swim, trying to ride bikes that were too big, climbing on furniture, and growling at taxidermied bears.

The Booth Bay Harbor fisherman’s festival happened to be that weekend.  We braved some chilly temps and a whole lot of rain to look at some boats and meet some of the friendliest Mainers ever.

The police chief of Booth Bay Harbor, Bob, offered to open up a fire truck and let Sam climb inside.  He even offered a tour of the police cruisers if we return this summer.  Sam was in button-loving heaven.  Thanks, Chief Bob!

On our last night in Maine, we went to the Sea Dog Brewery in Topsham for dinner.  Mom and dad enjoyed some brews and Sam enjoyed his first Oreo for dessert- dude totally twisted it open like a pro.  Color me impressed.

More to come on our coastal Maine adventure- The Holy Donut in Portland and Gather restaurant in Yarmouth, ME.

What’s your favorite quick getaway location?
