Well, we didn't intend on going to Maine but we woke up and decided we wanted lobster so that is how our next destination was chosen.  We drove through southern Vermont (and bought cheese and maple syrup) and southern New Hampshire.  Vermont was very pretty landscape and the homes were big, old and sprawling.  Many with the barns attached to the houses probably for the heavy snow in the winters.  Very neat architecture.  We stopped at a state park in NH and had lunch (we were anxious to eat our Vermont cheese) and a bit of a walk with the pups.  (I'm not sure how I feel about NH's motto of Live Free or Die especially when they tax you to death and toll you everywhere you go, anyways, conversation for another day) 

We decided to splurge on a hotel in Maine and got right out to some lobster eating.  We went down to the waterfront and at at DiMillo's Restaurant which is on a boat in the bay.  Fancy, schmancy Jeremy had the full meal.  Whole lobster, bucket of steamer clams, potato, veggies, soup, salad and bread pudding for dessert.  They even put a bib on him.  It was a delicious meal!!  The next morning we explored more and went to Fort Williams State Park.  Housed the first lighthouse in Maine that Geo Washington ordered to be built.  The Park had many reminders of it's day as a fort, battery barracks and such.  Then we found out the area is home to the largest chocolate sculpture.  Well, we couldn't pass that up and off we went to Len Libby's Chocolate Store.  The place was delicious and many samples around.  We ended up taking home a few goodies.  And ended our Portland tour with yummy Lobster Rolls.
