Day-cation all I ever wanted

I went on my first day-cation on Monday.  Sure I've been on day trips with my parents and such, but there is nothing that makes you feel more independent than renting a car and just driving.
We decided on a whim to go to Maine for the day, see the coast, and pop by L.L. Bean.
I am such a great driver
I had an absolute blast!  We drove up Route 1 from Boston into New Hampshire and onto Ocean Boulevard.  The houses there are gorgeous though I'm not sure I'll ever be able to own waterfront property.  It was nice to walk around and see the water, enjoy some quiet outside of the city.  The trees were absolutely lovely!  I lost my appreciation for fall when I was still living in New York, but now that I don't have them anymore they are once again unimaginably beautiful.  I guess you don't know what you have until it's gone right?  I could have spent all day smelling the crisp air and looking at the red leaves.
We got all the way to Freeport to get some Bean Boots for Doug (can you believe he didn't have any yet?!) and ended up getting some delicious hand cut doughnuts from a shop right outside (I'm a sucker for doughnuts).
We has lunch at this cute little tavern called Gritty McDuff's in Freeport.  The beer looked amazing, brewed right there, but unfortunately it wasn't an option for me so I opted for some French onion soup and tea to warm me up.
It was just a tad bit chilly inside

It was the most fun I've had in a while.  Who knew it would be so fun pretending to be on vacation for one day?  To top it off we came home and had a nice dessert of toast with Biscoff spread.  Absolutely a lovely day.

Do you day-cation?  Where do you go?  Let me know ;)
