We’re just finishing up day 5 of our Maine vacation and it’s been full of adventures so far – some good and some not so good – mostly good.
It’s been hot! It’s been very, very hot! So having access to a pool has been wonderful! The kids are really enjoying all the swimming.
Thankfully mornings and evening are rather cool, so we are able to enjoy them without the oppressive heat beating down on us.
A lot of mornings have been spent like this while I watch on, sipping my coffee and reading emails. It’s very relaxing!
This morning, after the usual routine of coffee outside we decided to go out for breakfast. We’ve been eyeing a little restaurant called Mae’s Cafe and Bakery ever since we arrived and today seemed like the perfect day to try it out.
If you find yourself in Bath, Maine…do yourself a little favour and have breakfast there! It’s in an old Victorian house and the atmosphere is so quaint. We sat on the front porch for our meal and the cool breeze was a wonderful welcome! It’s like going to your favourite Aunt’s house for breakfast…if your Aunt happens to be the best cook ever!
I had the Long Reach Egg’s Benedict – Lobster, Gouda and Avacado! I can’t even begin to explain the flavour harmony that took place in my mouth. Thankfully there were two eggs involved otherwise I probably wouldn’t have had much left after I shared with Daddy and my three baby birds!
The Princess had a Cinnamon Bun that was almost as big as her face! Mae’s also sell something that is called a Mae’s Bar and after tasting one I quickly realized Mae has been to Canada – it was a delicious Nanaimo Bar!
All you Canadians know what that is!
After breakfast we took a walk downtown which is a small little street filled with lots of touristy stores.
This one was my favourite and I ended up buying some gifts to take home to my loved ones. It was beautiful inside…the colours and textures were gorgeous and my artsy side was enveloped with inspiration!
After some shopping we made our way down to the waterfront and loved the Adirondack chairs they had in lieu of benches.
Seriously, how cute is that!?
By the time we had accomplished all of that we were tired, sweaty and full and unanimously wanted to head back for a swim.
I quickly ran into a little toy store we had visited earlier and bought the Monkey a snake stuffy he had fallen in love with. He was so pleased as it slithered up onto his lap in his car seat.
After wrapping it around his legs and arms he drifted off into a peaceful sleep.
