With time for lunch & shopping, we depart in mid-afternoon for one of Maine’s most picturesque coastal villages, Booth Bay Harbor.  Our home for two nights is the charming Tug Boat Inn, situated on the waterfront and in the village of quaint shops, restaurants, & fishing boats. The evening dinner is a highlight as we enjoy a traditional Lobster Bake, with all the trimmings, or a chance to sample other delicious choices from the hotel’s restaurant. (B,D)

OCT 7 BOOTH BAY HARBOR … Breakfast, & our pace slows as we enjoy the fishing village of Booth Bay, full of specialty and craft shops. We board a sightseeing boat for a harbor cruise that shows us the many vacation retreats in the area, and literally thousands of lobster buoys promising to yield their delicious treats.  The afternoon is at leisure to relax and refresh in this peaceful setting. Stroll into the many shops scattered around the bay, or walk across the bridge to the Fisherman’s Co-op for some fresh steamed seafood on the docks.  (B)

OCT 8 MT WASHINGTON HOTEL … Breakfast, & we travel across the lake region of Maine into the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Passing through scenic Crawford Notch, we can view Mt Washington, highest peak in New England, at 6,288 feet.  Lunch is quite a treat as we enjoy a fabulous Foliage Buffet at the famed Mt. Washington Hotel, located at the base of the mountain.  Next we take an exciting tram ride up Cannon Mountain at Franconia Notch for fabulous scenery and foliage colors of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. The enclosed 80 passenger tram rises 2,022 feet to the top of Cannon Mountain. Later in the afternoon the beauty and the serenity of the Green Mountains of Vermont greet us, our home for the next 2 nights.    (B,L)
