Beautiful MAINE!

July 29, 2019

.

Yesterday we spent all day exploring the coast of Maine, and WOW… it is GORGEOUS! We saw so much stuff I don’t know  where to start!!! We headed over to a place called TWO LIGHTS STATE PARK in Cape Elizabeth,  which is doggie friendly and you know we love that. They had a really cool walking trail that overlooked the craggy shore next to the water’s edge. There are picnic tables where you can bring a lunch a enjoy the scenery or sit down on one of the many benches and just enjoy the view… whatever you choose, you will love the area. It is so peaceful! As you can see in one of the pictures, the huge ledges below the path look like petrified wood… but these are really ROCKS that started as GRAINS OF SAND on the floor of an ancient ocean! ? A long time ago, as continental plates ground past each other, they were broken by faults and intruded by molten rock. When the continents began to pull apart, the Atlantic Ocean opened and began to erode the rocks. Isn’t that fascinating?!?!

We headed down the road a short way to see the PORTLAND HEAD LIGHT located in Fort Williams Park. They are ALSO doggie friendly! Here we met the nicest park greeter named Mr. Tony Nappi and he welcomed us to the area. ?❤️?? We went to peek at the big lighthouse and learned that it used to be a favorite place of the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The keepers of the lighthouse were friends of his, and he used to WALK HERE from Portland, Maine, just to visit this lighthouse.  It is thought that he sat right at this location when he wrote the famous poem “The Lighthouse” in 1849.

We had worked up an appetite by this time so Mummy suggested a local seafood place located on the beach called “The Lobster Shack.” Guess what Mummy ordered? Yep… a lobster roll! Thankfully she saved some of the lobster for us, so all of us got some too. The big outdoor patio is doggie friendly and there were lots of other doggies having lunch while we were there. The views from patio are spectacular!

The day was still not over because we were heading to Kennebunkport so Mummy could see the BUSH COMPOUND! Oh Lordy… you would think she had learned her lesson after the KENNEDY COMPOUND DISASTER but she thought seeing this house might be a little easier, and guess what… SHE WAS RIGHT! She got a nice picture across the water of President Bush’s summer house. As we drove out of Kennebunkport, we made one last stop at the beautiful St. Ann’s Episcopal Church. Ohhhhh it was so pretty!!! It overlooked the water and formed the most idyllic setting. By now, it was time for our dinner so we needed to get back, but our day had been PERFECT. We snoozed in our Sleepy Pod carseats all the way back to our campsite and dreamed about what we would be seeing NEXT. Did I mention that WE ARE IN LOVE WITH MAINE?  ??

I love Maine and the east coast. I got to see the Bush compound when the older Bush was president! I’m loving your travels and brings back great memories! I was an RN at a summer camp in New Hampshire in the 80s and brought my kids back a few years ago with our camper.

Millie, I keep forgetting to ask you if you have had any bad weather up there. I had seen that some thunder storms were headed up that way a few days ago. Glad to see that you and your family are having such a great time. Love to read about about them. You are such a good journalist. ………..Thank you and keep up the good work. Give your family my Best and don’t be to hard on your Daddy, he has to bring you all home. Good luck Dad. …..♡♡♡♡♡♡

Thank you for checking on us ms Linda! We missed the really bad storm last week by just a few days!!!! There have only been a couple of rainy days on our trip and the rain caught us late in the day so we weren’t too bothered by it. The HEAT has been our biggest complaint but the last several days have been nice and we are hoping the weather stays like this for a bit longer. ??

Millie, It is wonderful that you and your family are being beautiful New England. I have been to Maine twice recently and Portland Head is one of my MUST visits. I have a watercolor of it in my bathroom! Lobsters are wonderful, but if you all get to Bar Harbor, Mummy and Daddy should try the lobster platter at the Inn and sample the luscious clam chowda! We had a wonderful afternoon there a few years ago after our second visit to Acadia National Park. There is a great guided tour of the park. Wishing you continued wonderful adventures.

Oh my goodness! I am so glad you are loving Maine! It is so wonderful there and so much to see! I hope you were able to travel the road were you could get out of your car and see where President Bush would walk down the cliff and get on his boat. Years ago we actually got to meet him as he and secret service were walking up from fishing. Wonderful man! Love the Lobster Shack!!! Can’t wait till you get to Bar Harbor! Go on one of the boats tours that catches the lobsters and you will see… Read more »

We couldn’t get too close to the President’s house but at least we got a nice picture and could easily SEE IT… unlike the Kennedy place where we couldn’t see a dang thing! We are looking forward to a week in our next location here in Maine. WOW it is sooo pretty here! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

I’m so glad you’re enjoying Maine! I so love your Lobster Harnesses!! The Bush Compound is truly amazing, so pretty! Tell mummy to travel Route 1 and 1a, she will see lots of antique shops and flea markets. 🙂 I see you’re going to Acadia. My hubby and I enjoy the carriage ride trails and a must see is taking a tour up to Cadillac Mountain. Gorgeous View! The trails around Jordan Pond are very dog friendly. There’s just so many trails that are dog friendly and peaceful! We chose the shorter trails so our doggies wouldn’t get so tired… Read more »
