If last summer was the Great Reopening, what do we call this? I, like the other 334 million Americans, have been on the road to visit new places with friends & family. I traveled roughly 125 miles south of Boston then 125 miles north of Boston over two weekends to soak up some sun and indulge in the seafood along the way. Here are the highlights:

Where: Greenport & Shelter Island, New York

When: Weekend of June 18th

Why: To celebrate our friend’s wedding & my birthday

Travel: Drove to New London, CT to the Cross Sound Ferry to Orient Point, NY (3.5 hours door to door)


Where: Portland, Maine

When: Weekend of June 25th

Why: Reexplore Portland with my parents, sister, and Keith

Travel: Amtrak’s Downeaster Line – Boston, North Station to Portland ($24 each way)
