Favorite Summer Activities on the Maine Coast

After looking at this week’s forecast and my recent blogs, I decided that we are way overdue for a list of some of the favorite activities during the summertime and early fall along the Maine Coast.  It’s not really fair to limit this list to Kennebunkport Maine, because there is so much to do in the general area, and most visitors do actually visit out of Kennebunkport town lines at some point during their visit! They might not actually be aware that… Read More

A Summer Evening on the Maine Coast
