My husband’s family owns some land in Lubec, Maine (the Eastern-most town in the U.S.) and most years we spend at least a week there on vacation. It is a long drive — it usually takes us 9-10 hours — so the first day of the trip is mostly spent on the road. Last year we made the mistake of trying to drive in the night, which resulted in my husband feeling physically ill from all of the caffeine he had to ingest just to stay awake. This year we tried a different approach: leaving early in the morning (about 5:30am). We got to watch the sun rise as we waited at the Dunkin Donuts drive-through, but the early hour unfortunately meant that the little guy didn’t enough sleep or enough breakfast so he ended up getting sick, twice. But, we made it! It felt so good to get out of the car, stretch our legs, and gaze across the beautiful bay. And, we were even rewarded with a beautiful rainbow.
