So our honeymoon plans kept changing as we had to accomodate our shrinking budget due to the husband being laid off a few months before our wedding. So we went from having a cruise to going to Florida to going to Maine.
Pretty random I know. We thought about the cruise... and I'd much rather spend time on the beach than on a boat. Then I thought about Florida and how my future husband would be sitting at a beach bar over laying in the sand or swimming in the ocean with me. So discussing with a bridesmaid of mine I was telling her how I'd love to go somewhere we've both never been. She currently lives in Maine with her boyfriend and suggested "come to Maine!!"
At first I thought she was just joking but then I thought about it and I have alway wanted to visit the New England area for a while now. One state neither of us has been to was Maine. Photos looked stunning... so we were sold!
We ended up driving back to Maine with my bridesmaid and her boyfriend the Monday after our wedding. On the way to Maine we stopped at Niagara Falls (US side) for an hour as my husband and bridemaid have never seen the falls both being west coast natives. When we got to Maine we crashed at their home and the next morning we got a rental car and drove up to a place called Bar Harbor near Acadia National Park. Beautiful little town! Spent a couple days there and then drove back down to Portland, Maine where we stayed for a couple of nights checking out lighthouses, the ocean, and sights. Our last night in town we met up with my bridesmaid and her boyfriend and caught an 80's cover band that was awesome! The next day we drove to Boston and spent a day checking it out before we caught our flight home. We had a blast! Here are some photos I took throughout the trip.
