Last year for my birthday, Snake and I took a fabulous trip up the coast from Boston to Maine. It was a bucket list item for both of us and we had so much fun.
People laughed at us for going in November when it was going to be cold, but it really wasn’t. Acadia was a little wet and windy, but we expected that. We actually didn’t get snow until the night before we came home.
A year ago today, we were in the area of Hampton Beach, NH. I went there as a child with my parents and had vivid memories of the fireworks over the ocean on July 4th. We played on the beach all day and my mom got the whole lobster that she wanted to eat. I just remember playing with the claws and thinking it was strange that my mom was wearing a bib.
We have pictures of my grandparents on that beach with my dad, my parents and me on the beach and now we have pictures of Snake and me there. It really was a wonderful continuation of a tradition. And traveling with my best friend just makes everything better.
