This year we went to Maine for our family vakay. Daniel made all the plans last summer! We chose to fly Allegiant Air bacause it was a direct flight from the Samford (Orlando area) airport. It's possible that it was a little cheaper...but not sure it was worth it. :/ Our flight left at 7:05 am. So we left at 3:30 am. In all the excitement no one really slept on the way in the car OR the plane. Even the 5 year old!! What you see below lasted as long as it took to take this pic. HA. No, but seriously it was a 15 min nap. Daniel and I wanted to sit together so we stuck the kids in the row behind us. They did really well. Isaac worked on his notebook to keep his school skillz up. :) They watched movies and colored and such. I sat next to a lady from Orlando. Very sweet...and chatty. So no nap for me either. :)
Ate some chicken pad thai and hit the road.
We grocery shopped at the Hannaford in Ellsworth. GRACIOUS. It was packed and crazy. I was so worried I was in someones way the whole time. It was stressful to stop and consult my list!! Daniel was a hero and, armed w fortitude and a short list, he would take the kids (!) to find the items. We had 2 small carts full of food and I was ready to get outta there!
We drove the rest of the way to Bar Harbor (well just outside), turned left on to a gravel road...and made it to Tranquility. Literally...not just the house name but the LAND! We quickly unloaded the groceries and explored the house. They had a gift bag waiting for us from Jordan's (blueberry goodies!!).
We started hunting for sea glass (a MUST DO on the trip check list) and were having a hard time knowing what we were looking for. After a quick Google search and some helpful facts we started finding them all over the beach! You had to have had good eye to see them. Funny that we have turned sailors littering into a fun Maine beach past time/ treasure hunt!
