It was 60 degrees in DC this past weekend. So, of course, we decided to go to Maine – where there is still over a foot of snow on the ground.

Did I mention it’s snowing again? Yesterday and today. Yep.

As I will be heading back to Doha for the month of March, I am trying to soak in what I do like about the snow: the leafless trees look beautiful painted in snow, the quiet created by the insulation of a ground covering of snow, and the way it looks fluttering from the sky. Truly it is beautiful.

Maine is also beautiful. This was a very (very) quick trip! After work on Friday, we headed out on the 9-hour drive to Portland, arriving at the hotel about 2 am.

On Saturday we woke up fairly early and headed into town with a couple of friends we were visiting. We got lucky with the weather, and while it was cold, the sun was out. No complaints here.

After brunch and a mimosa, we checked out the lighthouse at Cape Elizabeth, explored the fort, and then went into downtown Portland to explore.

Our main reason for going to Maine was for our friend Crystal’s birthday – we drove about 45 minutes out into the Maine woods to a small town north of Portland and celebrated late! We were up early Sunday for the long drive back home. So much driving – probably too much for just a short weekend. But still a lot of fun!
