Wandering Maine: Downtown Portland

Although I have spent quite a bit of time in Portland through the years, I have never taken a whole day just to explore with no particular destination in mind. It has really endeared this city to me even more, learning some of its histories and taking it the atmosphere has really made me appreciate that you don’t have to travel far have new experiences and learn new things.

Wandering Maine: The Hamilton House

This is a second time I have toured the Hamilton House, but I feel like I learned so much more this time.

Wandering Maine: Kennebunkport

I spent a few pleasant hours in Kennebunkport a few days after Christmas, and I fell in love! I know at once I wanted to come back in the summer when more of the shops would be open, so I added it to my list of things to do over the summer.
There were a couple of places, in particular, I wanted to stop in, Rococo handcrafted Ice Cream, Satellite Doughnuts, and Minka, but other than that, I just wanted to wander. (Read More)

Wandering Maine: Laudholm Farm

Welcome to Laudholm Farm! One of the prettiest saltwater farms in Maine. With the wide-open sky, rolling fields, and a short walk to a gorgeous, peaceful beach, it really couldn’t be more ideally situated.
