Day 21 - Portland, Maine

July 11, 2015

Cody woke up super early and ran a 5K. Yesterday we were on a lobster boat and a lady told him about it and on a whim he decided to wake up and run it.

After Cody's run we went to the ocean. So today we marked the official day that we traveled from coast to coast. From Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine. 

From the beach we walked to a lighthouse. It was very cool because to get to the lighthouse we had to walk on big boulders that made a path in the ocean to it. 

We originally had a half day tour scheduled for food tasting in the city. It was canceled so we signed up for a drinking tour. The drinking tour was very cool. We stopped at four local places and tried various food and drinks. One in particular that we liked was Vena's Fizz Shop. Originally it was a soda shop that decided to start serving alcohol. They put bitters in the alcohol to change the flavor. I never heard of bitters before so it was interesting to learn about them. We snapped a pic of Cody with the owner. 

After the tour we went and did something a bit crazy for our personalities. We got matching white tattoos on our fingers. Mine says "His" and his says "Hers". 

Lastly we went to the waterfront. We ate at a place called Porthole. It was recommended to us on the tour. It was very busy. It took almost an hour and a half to get our food. The lobster was cold. I only ate the potatoes and roll. Can you tell I was not thrilled about this place? Anyways after dinner we went back to the RV and crashed from our long day.
