Stopped off on the side of the road for a picture

The Entrance to the Boston Public garden

I love the buildings in Boston!

It has been too long since my last post! Ben and I took off to the east coast for two whole weeks in search for some relaxation! We flew into Boston and spent a few nights there and toured the city. Then headed up to Maine where we spent the rest of our trip. Ben spent about seven years of his life in Auburn, Maine as a young boy and has gone back to visit family almost every year; this year would be different... He would bring his wife:) In Boston we ordered chinesse food at one in the morning(I love big cities!), toured Fenway park, walked the Freedom Trail, dinned in the North End in a little Italian cafe and of course we had to get Canolli's from a Italian bakery. We said our sad goodbyes to Boston and we were off to Maine. First stop, Auburn...Sam's pizza with Uncle Marc. After stuffing ourselves with pizza we were off to Jonesport, Maine! Up in Jonesport Ben and I focused on relaxing and doing a whole lot of nothing. We took walks on the beach, read book after book, played cards, and most importantly I ate tons of seafood. I tried lobster, fried clams, a famous haddock burger, and of course famous fish and chips. Some things that are a must in Maine... Sam's Pizza, Jonesport pizza shop, Diary Joy, Pat's Pizza, Helen's chocolate cream pie, and Dunkin donuts. I know that is all food but food up in Maine is totally different than food in California. Besides when I got back from my Vactation it was diet time!
In the end it was great to be able to see Ben's aunt, uncles, and cousins, along with that spend some time together just the two of us.
