A Beautiful Day in Kennebunkport

I hope you’re not tired of my steady stream of Maine-related posts, because I’ve got a couple more coming at you. Today’s is about Kennebunkport, a town that holds a special place in my heart. I visited Kennebunkport with my family while I was growing up, both in summer at the height of the “season” and in winter when the inn we stayed at was covered in snow. Literally, we once stayed there and got snowed in during a blizzard. This time around, there were no snowflakes, but there was sunshine, gorgeous ocean views, seafood, and ice cream in abundance. Nothing more needed for a perfect Monday. Or any day, really, but especially Monday when you’re on vacation and it feels great not to be back to the daily grind 🙂

Gluten Free at Fore Street Portland

A Friday evening meal at Fore Street in Portland, Maine was something both Brett and I had been looking forward to since we started planning our Maine trip. Fore Street is a popular restaurant, so much so that even before the summer season really begins, you need to call and make a reservation 30-60 days in advance. The restaurant does reserve some tables for walk-ins, but you need to show up quite early to snag one of those and we didn’t want to be rushing. Plus, the anticipation of a great meal makes the prospect of a vacation even better. At least I think so.
