Maine Vacation: Edgecomb ME to Utica NY

We departed Pioneer Motel shortly after 6:00 am this morning, on our way home.

Our first stop was for breakfast at McDonald’s in Bath, ME.  We had our customary bacon, egg and cheese bagel and sausage burritos meals.

Our second stop was at Cynthia and Larry’s house in Amherst, NH.  Cynthia is Bob’s sister.  We arrived at 10:45 am and left shortly after 2:00 pm.  We enjoyed good conversation and a delicious lunch. 

Our Lunch at Cynthia and Larry’s House

Our lunch was steak-lamb-turkey kabobs with potato salad and smoked bay scallops in a salad.  Dessert was brownies and lemon/raspberry bars.  Thank you, Cynthia and Larry, for the wonderful meal!

Shortly before we left to continue our drive home, I took a family picture.

We stopped for the night in Utica, NY at Red Roof Inn.   It was 7:45 pm, more than enough hours on the go!  After checking in, we drove to the nearby Denny’s Restaurant for dinner.  Shortly before 8:30 pm we returned to Red Roof Inn, where we stayed for rest of the night.

This blog post concludes Day 9 of our 10-day Maine vacation (June 28-July 7, 2019).

Thanksgiving 2012

We spent the Thanksgiving Day holiday in New Hampshire with Bob’s sister, Cynthia, Cynthia’s husband Larry, and Larry’s mother Marion.   Except for witnessing a three-vehicle accident in Vermont on Thanksgiving Day, while traveling Route 9 en route New Hampshire, and wintery conditions for the last 100 miles on our way back home on Saturday, driving conditions were good.  The traffic accident was a little too close for comfort.  I am thankful that Bob and I were not involved in the accident and that there were no serious injuries as a result of the accident.  We encountered white-out conditions on Interstate 86 / Route 17 in New York on Saturday on our way back home.  I am thankful that the first 400+ miles were driven in good driving conditions and that we made it home safely!

We had a great visit with Cynthia, Larry and Marion.

On Friday Bob, Larry, Cynthia, Weezie and I went for a walk at the Ponemah Bog Wildlife Refuge.

It was really cool that we saw a great blue heron, while at Ponemah Bog!

We returned home around 7:00 pm last night.  I hope everyone who reads this had a great Thanksgiving Day holiday as well!
