Day 28: Portland to Portsmouth
23.09.2010 18 °C
Hurrah!! I finally worked out my GPS got it to actually give me directions. Thank God as I needed later in the day (I will get to why later).
This morning I made my way down the coast heading for Cape Porpoise (I couldn't get out of my head Porpoise Spit) via Kennebunkport. Here there is a good view of the Goat Island Lighthouse. Made a brief photo opportunity and loo stop before heading onto Ogunquit to chow down on a lobster at Barnacle Billy's. It was a gorgeous afternoon, while I sat there getting messy on lobster and butter juices. The lobster was really good, but since I'm not a big lobster eater, I don't have much to compare it to (damn forgot to take a picture of my lobster). Just after I finished I went to get my phone, and uh oh, I didn't have it. Went back and checked the car and it wasn't there either. God bless a young girl in one of Ogunquit’s shops who let me use her phone to call my last hotel. Thankfully, they had it, so I was heading back up north to Portland (this is where my GPS was handy as I hadn't counted on having to go back to Portland). So I left Ogunquit in a bit of a hurry, but not before taking a few photos (it was too gorgeous not to).
After the 50 odd miles detour, I could now make my way to Portsmouth - relatively easy from Portland, just straight down the I-95. The place I am staying is lovely (other than the person upstairs sounds like they are choreographing a dance routine) and only 5 minutes from Portsmouth town centre. So I headed into town for a little wander and grab some dinner. The town is very quaint - very ye olde english.
Tomorrow I head to Salem. I have a night tour scheduled which I am looking forward to. I have posted new pix from my journey today.
Anyway better go as new Greys has just started.
