The Impressive Windows Of Castle Tucker, Wiscasset, Maine

Maine: Wiscasset & Castle Tucker

Wiscasset, Maine is one of the prettiest villages in the State with great restaurants and interesting shops. If you like Maine lobster then this is a great place to check out. The town has a long and proud history and saw it as one of the early contenders to be the State Capital of Maine, driven by its marine industry. Once the winds of changes drove this business back to a cottage industry, Wiscasset returned to a sleepier state. In the time of the town's great wealth some large houses were built, some of which are now in the hands of a trust and can be visited.

New Hampshire: Mount Washington

Located in New Hampshire's White Mountains, Mount Washington is the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi. The summit is extremely exposed which results in some wild and unpredictable weather. Even in the summer, it can be very cold and windy on top of Mount Washington. For many years the highest measured wind speed record was held by the weather station on the mountain's summit! This is a very accessible mountain and you can get to the top several ways; on foot, by road or take the cog railway. The latter is an great experience and in our opinion the most fun (hiking would be good too but I am not sure we're up for it these days)

New Hampshire: Sugar Hill – Polly’s Pancake Parlor (Eatery Review)

Whilst we follow a mainly plant-based diet we are occasionally tempted to stray. Back in 2007 (prior to changing our diet), I had visited Polly's Pancake Parlor with the children, but Karen missed our visit. So, when the opportunity arose to visit again 14 years later it was too good an opportunity to miss. Much had changed about the Parlor itself - but the food was still amazing!

Vermont: Waterbury – Ben & Jerry’s Factory

We have had the great opportunity to twice visit the Ben & Jerry's factory in Waterbury, Vermont. A lot had changed in the nearly 15 years between our visits! The second time around was during the Covid-19 pandemic so we couldn't go and see the production lines but it was great to visit the 'flavour graveyard' and see the place where it all began - sort of!
