Last weekend my mom took me to York, ME to continue my birthday celebration and it was beautiful and relaxing. From Nubble Lighthouse to Old Historical York we managed to see quite a bit in an eight hour span. There is an incredible amount of activities to do in this area and I was so glad to be able to experience it and have a perfect day for it.
We started off our day at Nubble Lighthouse on Cape Neddick, and you are able to drive right up and gaze at the ocean and the lighthouse from the rocks. There is a cute little gift shop that has all sorts of fun items as well as gorgeous paintings of the lighthouse to can buy to take home. There was also a historian on site who was giving unique and interesting information to all those who stopped by his table.
After the lighthouse we made a pit stop at Bagel Basket because I heard it was one of the best places to get bagels. It was amazing!!! I purchased a Wildberry Bagel with Strawberry cream cheese and the bagel was exploding with flavor and pieces of fruit. My mom was super thrilled they had gluten free bagels and had a breakfast sandwich which she said was very good.
Loved this sign
So very good!
After snacking on this yummy bagels we headed to Long Sands beach which was not too crowded and very peaceful. After walking around with my mom, lounging, digging my feet in the sand and taking some pictures I felt so much more relaxed. Taking a little bit of time to get away from your day to day helps so much. As a blogger this gave me the opportunity to write about my travels and as an individual it gave me the opportunity to bask in the serenity.
After our stroll we stopped right across from the beach at this lovely restaurant called Lobster Cove we sat on the second floor seating where we had an incredible view of the ocean. When in Maine or really any ocean side restaurant you must order Lobster, which I did. 🙂 My mom ordered clam chowder and scallops wrapped in bacon and we also ordered a crab cake appetizer that was to die for. A fantastic meal!
Tanned and ready to eat!
Clam chowder was amazing

We then headed into Historical York where we were able to see one of the oldest jails and take in a chocolate demonstration. The chocolate was so amazing and the recipe used only 18th century ingredients, items available to them at that time. It was incredibly informative and a lot of fun.
There was a great ice cream place in the village called “Village Scoop Ice Cream” which had this wonderfully rich, creamy ice cream. Great way to end an amazing day and I cant wait to go back!
I hope you enjoyed all the pictures!!!
