The Coast of Maine
My hubby and I went to Maine last week. We had never been in that part of the country before. The above picture is the house in Portland that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow grew up in. He wrote a lot of wonderful poetry - my favorite is "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere."Our first morning there we went out on a tour boat and saw a lot of adorable little coastal communities, and quite a few lighthouses. It was well-worth the time to go out on that boat because we saw places we would not have been able to see otherwise. Beautiful architecture up there!
Below is Portland Head Light.
After a day in Portland, we spent the next two days in Kennebunkport. It is an incredibly beautiful little coastal town.
I will post a few pictures of Kennebunkport tomorrow. If you are ever going to go to Maine, Kennebunkport is the place to go!!
