The Beautiful Northeast

Lee left for Africa in October, and I had 11 days all by my lonesome. I’d planned on visiting my parents in Florida, but when they said they were going on vacation in the Northeast, I…well, I sort of invited myself. So, first they met up with me on a plane in Baltimore:

We headed into Boston the next day:

But before we got there, we got lost. To amuse myself, I took these photos out the window.

And then we did the tourist thing and walked the Freedom Trail, which definitely had some cool spots. The day itself though was slightly miserable as it was cold and misty/raining the whole time. Yucko. But, here is some patriotic stuff.

Here lies the body of ol’ John Hancock. And here is John Hancock’s brother from another mother telling the crowds all about it.

This was sorta neato– there was a memorial to the soldiers who were MIA or had lost their lives in recent wars.

Then we headed out to the Harbor… which was too cool, and exactly what you think it would be like. Seagulls sitting on pilings…

Lots of chain and benches and gray…

The city skyline goes much higher than you can see here. The very thick fog that rolled in off the water was absolutely crazy! It obscured whole buildings.

We ate at the (famous, I guess) Legal Sea Foods. Yummo.

After Boston we toured around some places and drove up the East Coast toward Maine. We headed for Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park (which everyone absolutely should go see once in their life. Beautiful.)

Panoramic view from a mountain the park.

We drove up Cadillac Mountain, which is the tallest peak along the East Coast of the U.S. It was reeeeally windy up there.

A pano of the view:

Another spot in the park is called Thunder Hole. The water crashes into a cave under the cliffs and booms. People wait around for the big, unpredictable booms.

And then lastly were the beaches in the park. I wasn’t quite sure why we were bothering to stop at the beach… I mean, its not like it was warm enough to swim or anything. What I didn’t know was that the beaches looked like THIS.

We rounded out our Maine trip with a breakfast of blueberry pancakes before headin into the White Mountains of Vermont and driving along the Kankamangus Highway (this is also a must see!! Amazing!)

Thanks Mom and Dad for the beautiful trip! We sure got to see God’s glory displayed… didn’t we!
