The Bardots in New England!
We recently traveled to Massachusetts to photograph Chris and Shannon’s wedding, (click here to see their awesome teaser!) and took a couple days to explore New England a little bit. Our first stop was to the wonderful city of Boston, MA.
Brave little squirrel at Boston Commons.
We spent the day following the Freedom Trail all over Boston. We loved getting to see and learn about all the historical events that happened there.
One of my favorite stops was the Granary Burying Ground, where some famous early americans are buried, like John Hancock, Paul Revere and even Mother Goose. Yeah, she was a real person! I loved the artwork on the tombstones. The skull and wings signified the soul flying up to heaven.
Paul Revere and Mother Goose!
Love the juxtaposition of old and new.
HELLOOOO giant mac and cheese noodle! Why, yes, I do love you.
We stopped in for a drink and some delicious oysters at the Union Oyster House — the oldest restaurant in continuous service in the U.S.
The lobsters put on a show!
“One if by land, two if by sea.” This is the steeple of Old North Church, where the signal lanterns were hung.
We thought this was funny. This is the Skinny House, which is the narrowest house in Boston. It is said that the house was built out of spite to block the neighbor’s light and air.
So, Geoff and I have both never experienced cannolis before, so we heard the two best bakeries in Boston were Mike’s Pastry and Modern Pastry. So we of course had to try both!
MMMMMM…SO good! It was our conclusion that Mike’s had the best pastry and Modern had the best filling.
What trip to Boston would be complete without a stop to Cheers?
Beautiful Boston! Geoff and I loved it there, what a great city!
The next day we hopped in our rental car and drove up to Kennebunkport, Maine.
One of our goals was to fill up on lobstah while we were there. These lobster rolls from The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport were amazing!
Check out the amazing sunset! To be honest, it was such a trip to see the sun setting over land instead of the ocean. I do love west coast sunsets, but this was so lovely!
Yummy!For dinner we dined on chowdah…
…and LOBSTAH! This was my first time eating a WHOLE lobster and this 2 pounder was amazing!! We were so full…
It’s okay to play with your food.
One of my life goals is to visit New England in Autumn to see the fall colors. I was so happy we were able to drive all over Maine doing just that! It wasn’t QUITE peak season, but it was still beautiful.
After all that fun, we had an AMAZING time photographing Chris and Shannon’s wedding! Stay tuned for those photos!
