Kennebunkport, Maine-- Day 1

 We spent July 7th- July 9th on a little weekend getaway to Kennebunkport, Maine.  We often head to Maine for a quick trip since it's nice and close and I have yet to stay anywhere along the Maine coast and not have a great time.  

We woke up at our regular time and started getting ready to go.  We probably left the house around 7/ 7:30 after eating breakfast and made a quick stop at my husband's work. 


We arrived at our hotel around 11 and even though check in was not until 3 we went in and asked if it as possible to get our parking pass early (it was!).  This is the main building of the hotel where the check in desk and spa are located but our rooms were in another building just steps down the street.



We decided to walk back to the main town of Kennebunkport and find some lunch. 



We ate out on the patio of The Boathouse and the food and view were great; as was the nice cool breeze off the water. 





My husband got a seafood stir fry 

I got the baked haddock and fresh veggies


We walked around, did some shopping and sight seeing, and got some ice cream. 




There were entire galleries with these huge beautiful moving sculptures.  I took a lot of photos hoping to get my husband to make me some.  







Peanut butter chocolate chip from Big Daddy's homemade ice cream shop (a small chain you'll find up and down the coast in the Maine)


We found a cute little park and sat to watch the boats and things.




We eventually made our way past the hotel in the opposite direction and spent some time on the small beach walking in the sand and sitting up on the rocky area of the beach watching the waves.





I was already burned from our time at the beach on Thursday and by the end of the day I had added to it!

Our room was ready to check into around 3 and we went to check it out.  I sat out on our deck reading, we eventually took showers and then we headed across the street to Mabel's Lobster Claw for dinner. 




We went on another short walk after dinner then turned in early for the night. 


It was a wonderfully relaxing first day of vacation.

  11. What a lovely spot to be able to get away to! My mom took my kids there on spring break one year just to post in front of Pres. Bush's house. They did not get the photo!

    1. Thanks! We drove by the Bush compound and knew they were in residence since they had armed security and saw the family boat in town one day.
