DAY 7: AUBURN, ME TO PLYMOUTH, MA

Our seventh day started in Maine and began a dash northbound. Seafood being a culinary staple, we checked out Weathervane Seafood Restaurant in Kittery, ME, which we were told was some of the best in town. We continued and came across an immense steel bridge. Opened in 1972, The Piscataqua River Bridge is a through arch bridge that connects Portsmouth, New Hampshire with Kittery, Maine. Making our way, we stopped by several Volkswagen dealerships including Commonwealth VW. This name gives insight to the British influence of the area in New England. We also met a nice lady and her dog as they relaxed and read a book while they charged their vehicle. Quirk VW was very nice and they all greeted us sporting suits and ties. The Minuteman VW in Bedford, MA exhibited a whimsical mural featuring bright flowers and a classic VW van on the windows of the dealership that they are very proud of. Boston was the first big city we were able to be the guests of. The employees at Boston VW displayed welcoming smiles for a picture. We are thankful they were nice enough to show us around in a second car with a very pleasant driver. The city was a mix of large modern buildings and magnificent Victorian buildings. It was exciting to see a big, blue amphibious vehicle giving tours of Boston. We got to explore the outside of the famous Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Redsox since 1912 and the oldest active ballpark in the MLB. Outside of the historic stadium stands many statues including one of a baseball player placing a ball cap on the head of a child. The generational impact that baseball has had in America and Boston specifically is wonderfully displayed. We stopped by a lovely mural painted on the side of a bridge exhibiting many of the great things and diverse people Boston has to offer. Afterwards, we were able to see a very scenic view by the water. We charged at a gas station that had an Electrify America integrated, conveniently near the gas pump stations. We then concluded our day in Plymouth, MA.
