USA - Old Orchard beach & Portland, Maine

sunny 26 °C

Driving north we pretty quickly arrived in Maine, the very last state of our American adventure. We stopped in at Old Orchard Beach, a coastal holiday spot, with an arcade hall on the pier.

A couple of years ago when we were in Chile, we saw an episode of the American show Man Versus Food, where the host takes on an array of food challenges. Anyway, one of the restaurants is in Old Orchard Beach, so we couldn't resist popping in to try one of their famous Mother Futcher milkshakes - a big shake with coffeecake mixed in - yum! Hoss and Mary's - thank you!


Portland is a larger town nearby, and with a historical centre. It's another popular holiday spot for locals, with numerous piers jutting out into the harbour, and a bounty of fresh seafood.

A little further up the coast we stopped in a Young's Lobster Pound, a shack on the water, with a large deck. You go inside, pick your lobster and take it out on the deck when it's freshly cooked for a meal with your BYO salad and drinks - a great idea, we just forgot about the BYO part! It was a beauty of a spot to sit back enjoy the sun.
