Maine Again

Yet again, we are back from a summer jaunt in Maine. This time around, we chose a fishing village in the southwesterly coast, just 90 miles north of Boston. We stayed in Kennebunk but every time we ventured out to eat or shop or swim in the ocean, the lines got blurred as to where Kennebunk ends and Kennebunkport begins.

As you see, the … Read the rest

Three Funny Things. Okay, Maybe Just Two.

What is a pronoun?
It is a noun that has lost its amateur status.

These two lines cracked my 6 year old up. He was reading Calvin and Hobbes. When he narrated the joke to me, I was elbow deep in some mundane work and probably didn’t even crack a real smile. Uh-huh, I must have said. But later that night, as I was getting … Read the rest

All Things Autumn

Autumn in New England is not to be taken lightly. It’s when the green around us gets replaced by flaming oranges and bright reds and golden yellows, but not for long. Soon most of the color will disappear, and slowly but surely, frosty white will take its place.

Amidst the maple pecan lattes, blushed cheeks, fall fashion, and seasonal delights, there’s a sense of time … Read the rest

Pic(k) of the Week – Maine Sunset

On our very first evening in Boothbay Harbor, we parked on Shore Road and walked along the rocky coastline just in time to view this gorgeous sunset.

The Ocean Point Inn stood by the shore making the most of its vantage point.

Main Streets of Maine

So, there we were, parked right on Boothbay Harbor’s hopping Main Street. It had everything you would expect in a quintessential New England setting. And I was thinking of wandering in and out of quaint shops selling everything from tshirts and scarves to knick-knacks that I wouldn’t know what to do with even if I bought them.

Although, I did like the sea-themed pillows and … Read the rest

Maine – Pristine Beaches and Lobster Tales

Deep harbors, scenic lighthouses, lobsters, blueberries, rocky coastlines, and thick forests come to mind when one thinks of Maine in summer. If you go by satellite images, its jagged coastline stretches to 5500 miles, if we include all the islands. Conveniently located farther northeast than any other state in U.S., the state of Maine covers nearly as many square miles as the other five New … Read the rest

A Recap of the Year 2012

I guess I still have time to do a recap of my travels in 2012, seeing as we are in the first month of the new year. Surprisingly, Newport featured twice in our travels, the first time was when we did the Cliff Walk with my parents and then during Christmas. I wrote a couple of posts about foodie trends (eating local and … Read the rest
