Maine. Lobster, lakes and beautiful scenery. We’ve just finished four heavenly days of summer holidays there with my three best friends from university and their children – and my toddler has turned into a full-sentence speaking American boy overnight under their influence. I’m still a bit shocked to hear him yell “Mom!” across long distances to catch my attention.
But what a lovely trip. It was a rural heaven with no buggies or crowds. We stayed with my girlfriend who lived on the lake with her husband, three children and two large dogs, spending all day kayaking and swimming, picnicking on lobster, steak, white wine and too much chocolate. Bonfires at night. On the last day we drove to the nearby beach, running in and out of the sea when the cold water hit our ankles.
Thinking about a holiday with friends in the USA? Maine is a perfect retreat and not too hot in the summer. Wishing all of you lovely summer holidays too.
