Over the past two days we’ve gone through Portland, Maine to arrive in Portland, Oregon via Boston. We first came to Portland (Oregon) a year and a half ago and it’s great to be back. We had a soak in our hotel’s 100-degree saltwater soaking pool before heading out to drinks and dinner. We returned to our favorites, Clyde Common and the Teardrop Lounge, for cocktails and dined at Little Bird. So much deliciousness. The drinks pictured here are a Smith and Cross tiki drink with absinthe and bitters (on fire!) and a tequila drink with chile threads and maple syrup. I forget the names because I haven’t really slept in 48 hours.

Sail #3: 1 tack out and 1 back. Perfect weather, winds gusting to 25 knots.

Today we took the motor boat to the Hop for a picnic of lobster rolls. Here’s a picture of Theo lounging just after.

The best hammock in the world.

For the past two days my dad and I have gone out for an afternoon sail. Yesterday was calm, winds around 10 knots. Relaxing, if you’re into that sort of sail.

Today, on the other hand, was a rail-under kind of day. A reef in the sail, the thrill of a knock down, sea spray in the cockpit. My kind of day.

First lobster roll of the season! We have finally made it to the state of Maine, just four more hours to go!

Day 12-14: New York!
We’ve been staying at my parents’ lovely apartment in the Village and knocking out a few wedding to dos. Theo got a great suit, we met with our priest, and I got my bi-annual haircut. 
We’ve also (of course) been doing some excellent eating and drinking. Highlights include Mayahuel (where we had fantastic mezcal cocktails and saw St. Vincent!), Puddin’, Crif Dogs, and Num Pang.

Day 10: Rochester

We had a lovely (and much needed) day of rest with Rachel. We went to the farmers’ market for some delicious baked goods and salad ingredients (and the best yogurt of my life), and then toured Rochester’s mansions and cool neighborhoods and lounged around various coffee shops. 

Day 11: Rochester to Pownal, VT
Miles: 275
Time: 5 hours

We left Rochester and headed to visit Theo’s dad in Vermont. It’s raining and perfectly cool, and we’re finally doing laundry and catching up on life and wedding planning and more.
