Big Spring Ride: Part Seven: Portland

Today, Friday, Kylie and I rode from Thornton, NH, in the middle of the White Mountains, to Portland, ME.

The best part of the ride was on the Kancamagus Highway, 35 miles through the White Mountain National Forest.

It was a great road, but today it was cold and windy. 49 degrees at the pass, 22 mph winds with big gusts. It could have been more comfortable.

The remainder of the ride was uneventful, other than the wind, but we made it to the hotel in Portland at 1:00.

We heeded wbdvt's advice and had lunch at Eventide Oysters.

The server got us two each of six different oysters. They all were perfect.

Then I had the Lobster Stew. It was even better. What a fine restaurant.

We then walked around the old port area and had beer at Gritty's followed by a lobster dinner at Portland Lobster Company.

A very good day.

I am going to be very sad to drop off Kylie at the airport tomorrow.

But meeting up with Ken will help.

Not a good photo in general, but a good one of Kylie.
She liked the oysters too.
