After nearly 20 years we returned to where we used to go to for a summer vacation. It’s funny how “big” Kennebunkport Maine felt as a kid, and while still a great town, a smaller downtown than we remembered. So much so that Isabel, Mom and I thought it was a different town and the larger town would be further down the road. Wrong. Other than that we had a glorious vacation, with sun filled days.
And we couldn’t of asked for a better location, ocean directly in front of us, close enough to town for convenience but not in the congestion of it, two beaches within a short walk and all the amenities we’d want. There were morning runs, walks on the beach, whale watching, kayaking, beach days (full with swimming), Portland trip, family sailing outing and they took an outing to Ogunquit, Maine (while I napped from my Kayaking excursion) and of course walking down memory lane in Kennebunkport.
Some lessons learned: Kayaking with the tide is a lot easier than against the tide. Google Maps does not love giving directions in Portland Maine. Warn family if you have Zinc Oxide based sun block otherwise they will look like ghosts:) Everything is better with gin and tonic.
In Maine Life is a Beach and I can’t wait to return!
