Road trippin’

Last night we visited with some friends in Greenville, Maine. William loved playing with their pirate ship playground in the yard and we loved the charming company, delicious food and festive atmosphere.

We got up this morning and headed south toward Bangor. My brother-in-law was flying in for a visit and we were picking him up at the airport. We stopped in Dover-Foxcroft for some coffee and donuts to go and were pleasantly surprised by the Center Coffee House.

 Delicious donuts, scrumptious scones and incomparable cappuccino just begins to describe our experience. This was a welcome addition to our southward trek and I think we will be stopping here every time we pass by from now on.

We had a little time to kill so we hit up the L.L. Bean outlet in Bangor.

My son found some seriously cool shark slippers so it turned out to be well worth the stop.

We headed to the airport afterward to pick up my brother-in-law, Taylor.

He flew in all the way from Florida and by the time he arrived, he was ready to go get dinner and drinks.

We headed downtown to our favorite local pub, Paddy Murphy’s. We always have a good time but tonight was extra special because we were celebrating Taylor’s birthday and it was his first time in Maine.

We went all out, enjoying appetizers, entrees, dessert and several pints to wash it all down.

In good spirits and good company, we headed off into the night. We were all happy to be together enjoying a night out on the town.
