*********** (super long blog post disclaimer!!!)*******with miss miley in tow, we packed our bags and headed to the airport.
24 + hours later we made it to maine.
what was supposed to be a 6 hour trip, turned into the worst flight experience EVER!
late flight, fog, closed airport, flight crew timing out, no plane...
our airline had every excuse in the book.
wichita to atlanta to portland. that was supposed to be it.
wichita to atlanta to portland (never landed) to boston back to portland (never landed) to baltimore to boston and then took a bus from boston to portland.
miley was a trooper, never once whined or barked. she had way more patience that i did.
i hate being at the airlines mercy. HATE IT!
miley loved the bus ride though...the biggest windows in the world to look out of.
when we finally made it to tonya & sean's house, i totally broke down...
i was a big crying mess.
i had already had one meltdown on the last flight, but this one was completely different.
so happy and relieved to finally be there. i was so physically and emotionally drained, but so happy to finally see my bestie and this wonderful place she gets to call home 6 months out of the year.
red snappers for dinner...
bright and early the next morning we loaded everyone up ( four of tonya's texas friends were also visiting)
and headed for the ocean to go catch some lobster.
we met up with captain robert and headed out.
i love to eat fresh lobster.
at some point i will show you how we cooked them...but this post is already gonna be long.
i did hold one, but the minute he reached his claws back i would panic.
we ended up buying some off another boat to eat for dinner that night.
some breathtaking scenery.
this is a much smaller one, that is now someones vacation home.
can you imagine?? lucky peeps!
we also saw a lot of puffin.
they are the funniest birds...they sort of look like a cross between a duck and a penguin.
they were all over the lighthouse island.
especially when they would take off from the water.
more to come.
