a wicked ahsome time / by Kayci Detweiler

I am loving the Northeast. I don't know if it's the coastal vibes or the crisp, fall air... but they're onto something out here I must say! We've seen so many quaint little towns.

Our time in this part of the country is short and sweet, totalling in at less than one week. Sad but true, folks, our time is coming to an end. :( Bittersweet feels. 

The NE tour, as we'll call it, started in Boston (pronounced bah-stan), full of history, pastries, and stereotypical accents. I loved it.

We took a walking tour of part of the Freedom Trail, which gave us the story of Paul Revere and the American Revolution... Including the Old North Church, where the lanterns were hung to warn the colonists that the British were traveling by sea {I sadly don't remember the rest of the story.} Can you imagine sitting in those boxes for a church service? Fascinating. 

Mike's Pastry shop was a necessary stop because of this:

Holy Cannolli!

We also had dinner at the oldest operating tavern in the country, the Bell in Hand. Yum!

Also, a slight detour took us to the original Dunkin Donuts location. So New England of us. As far as donuts go, this one was a classic, so obviously it's high on the list.

We drove past Harvard on our way out of town, because why not!

After Boston, we headed off to a stop in Portsmouth, NH. Maybe the cutest little town ever. It was a little rainy, which was unfortunate, but it didn't deter us from walking around the shops in Market Square. Beautiful. 

From there we drove to Portland, ME {also known as, the other Portland.} I actually really enjoyed this Portland as well! A cute little sea-town full of brick buildings and lighthouses and lobsters. Love it. City but not too city....which is my kind of city :)

Tomorrow night is actually the last night of the trip, which means last blog post? I can't take it!
