One was a campaign rally in a rural area, at a supporters private home and the other one at a local church in Portsmouth, NH. We quickly RSVPd for both of them, packed our bags and drove north. On the way, we got hungry and stopped at a local dinner, where we ate a delicious lobster brisket. Thanks to our many friends, we knew that New England was the best part of the US for fresh lobster.

The next day, we drove along the beautiful New England coast, all the way to Portland, ME. The whole area feels a little bit like Scandinavia. It's where some of the first European settlers arrived. This was the furthest east we would go. We went to the beach, but we could do more than dip our feet in the water. The northern Atlantic was just way too cold. Just because we could, we had a delicious lobster roll for lunch and washed it down with a local craft beer.
