Back On The Coast To Boston
After the relaxing days at the Acadia National Park Clemens and I had to continue our journey back to Boston. As we had plenty of time we just wanted to get as far as we can and take some for interesting sights on the road. We've discovered a scenic bridge, an old fort and a famous harbour - Boothbay harbour.
The initial plan was to spend a second day at Boothbay harbour and go on a whale watching tour. Unfortunately the weather forecast was very bad and on the next day there it really was raining the whole day. The best thing to do was to go back on the road again and head down further south on the old classic "Route 1". Portland was the big stop on the road and the harbour city was really worth a stop. A clean, scenic city full of life and plenty of dining choices. Later on we headed to Portsmouth to have another city on the list and it was a more laid back and relaxed impression as the stop before.
At the very evening we've decided to leave the city, get something for dinner and then go further south and find a motel for the night. On the way to the motel we've found a Japanese steak house and decided to have dinner there. What we didn't know is that the chef comes to the table and cook exclusively for the guests. Show time as it best! We have survived finally the entertainment and could escape to the closest motel. Tomorrow we continue to Boston and prepare for the upcoming module in Entrepreneurship & Innovation.
