Kennebunkport and Portland, Maine 2022

It was a cool, crisp, lovely beautiful day along the far Northeast seaboard.

The Scary House fits in nicely here this time of year.

Downtown Kennebunkport is quite a quaint spot.  We are at the very end of the season and many stores and restaurants are already closed for the winter.

Even just glancing at an inland low tide is relaxing.

Many of “the wealthy” still maintain mansions here, where  they are used for maybe one month a year.

The Bush family has its compound here. George (41) spent his summers here and George (43) visited often, but the summer was more typically spent in Texas.

The Portland Head Lighthouse is the most photographed  in the United States.

According to U.S. News and World Report, Portland is one of the top ten cities in the country to live. It is young, hip, safe, and affordable. Who knew?

I can see why lobster rolls are such a big deal here.

 

Did you know until late in the 1800s lobsters just washed up on the shores here and were a staple for poor people and prisoners. They were a good source of cheap protein. The fishermen even used them as bait.

One Response so far.
