For the last few months we’ve been batting ideas back and forth about different places we’d like to see – we want to go up the Cape, see more of Providence (other than the airport, ha ha!), maybe a bit more of Boston. I’d also really like to go to Vermont, but that’s a bit farther, and Maine just seems like such a pretty place to visit. I think I could skip New Hampshire altogether and not feel bereft, but that’s just me.
So – Freeport, home of the LL Bean flagship store! I’ll admit, I’m inordinately excited about going there. Maybe that makes me a nerd, but I don’t care. Chris isn’t exactly “inordinately excited” about visiting LL Bean, but he’s happy that I’ll be happy, and he’s happy that we’ll be visiting this place – Cold River Vodka distillery, whose vodka is purported to be “Great with lobster. Perfect with sunset.” Sounds good to me! I think we’ll also probably stop at Blacksmiths Winery in South Casco. We’ll have to see how much time we have and how interesting they look once we get there, as well as how much vodka we’ve sampled at the distillery 😉
