New England Trip: A Boat Ride and Day 3

Day 2: The Boat Ride

   This part got overlooked because I forgot my camera, so I don't have any pictures.  Nonetheless, I thought I would tell you all a little bit about it:

    We got to my aunt and uncle's house around 3 o' clock I think, and we left pretty soon after for the boat.  We went down to the marina to where his boat was docked.  It was a cute little thing; but it didn't have much seating, so I ended up perched on the edge for most of the ride, which was AMAZING!  You know the Long Island Sound, where George Washington took his men across one foggy night during the Revolutionary War?  WE WENT THERE!!  It was so cool to think that I was at the same place that George Washington had been so many years ago.  It was absolutely beautiful.  I wish I could describe it for you, but even pictures would not have done it justice.  The water was perfectly clear and flat; with a gentle breeze, and the way the sun reflected off the water, and the mist in your face; it was awesome.  Amazing.  Beautiful.  Words cannot describe how wonderful gliding across the water was.  And we were actually in the ocean, which was pretty cool. =)  We were out on the boat for about 4 hours.  It was wonderful! =)

Day 3:

   On Day 3 we drove all the way from Connecticut to Maine.  It was the longest day we drove, and so by the end of it we were pretty tired.  I didn't take that many pictures this day, I think I spend most of the time that I wasn't driving on the computer playing a game or writing.

 Right now I don't even remember what bridge this is....Oh well. Haha

And then....We reached Maine.

 The motto was: The Way Life Should Be, and my sister did a post on this.  

This was at the welcome center.  Ha. Ha.  
Someone traveling would never do this!  Right? ;)

Another mirror selfie.  I was rather addicted to these things.

Okay, you will have to forgive my looks in this picture; I had been traveling all day if you recall, but I thought I'd just post it anyway. =)

This is how the expressway looked most of the time I drove it in Maine.  You couldn't even see the other lanes going the opposite way; there were too many trees in between.

The speed limit in the picture above was 75 mph.  
That was 5 mph faster than I had even seen it. 
 But, I also passed, like, 4 cars in an hour, so it makes sense. lol


We stopped at a scenic outlook.  IT WAS GORGEOUS!!

Back on the road again:

 My grandparents drove about an hour to meet us for dinner and so that we could follow them back to the camp.  There was this cute little bridge with lights strung through it.  It was really pretty. =)

Another lamp post.  I was addicted to these too.  You must admit it they are beautiful, though.

We ate at a Chinese restraunt and had hot tea.  That stuff is delishous!  And sugar buns.  I love those things.  By the time we got to the camp it was dark, but we got to stay in a cabin!  It was a cute little thing.  I'll talk more about it later. =)

 And that's about it!  =D

  6. Wow, great pictures! You remind me of the times my family and I were traveling back and forth from Florida to West Virginia (we were moving). We drove for over a day straight, going through Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and finally West Virginia. Thankfully that's over now, and we are comfortably settled :) Thanks for sharing your travel experiences!
    Smiles :),
