Portland, Maine

                                   
Over Memorial Weekend, we visited Maine. It was a beautiful state! In Portland, I ate blueberry pancakes (twice!), went to a cool bar that was having a Smiths Tribute night, visited the art museum, toured the Victoria Mansion, and found a ton of independently owned shops that sold crafts, art, and vintage stuff.

But I really wanted to see lighthouses because I had always been fascinated by them (and FYI Maine has over 60). So we drove to the coast to take in the seaside views that Maine is famous for.
