Good evening from Kennebunk, ME. (Not to be confused with Kennebunkfort which is 5 miles away and where we ate our dinner. we are staying at a place called the Lodge at Kennebunk. Very cute room with a huge Kingsize bed! Winding down by writing the blog and watching Big 10 Volleyball. Internet is very slow here so hopefully I can still get the pics uploaded.


We got on the road around 8:30am and decided to take the scenic byway (127a) and went through Manchester By the Sea into Glouchester for our first stop of the morning. We enjoyed walking from the information desk all the way down to the middle of town. We saw the Wives and families statue and also the Man at the Wheel statue. We enjoyed the flower beds along the way. It must have taken a lot of work to maintain these. Each type of flower was labeled too. Could walk here every day if I lived here. So peaceful!


Then we decided to try and find the Eastern Point Lighthouse which was out by the Audubon Refuge next to the Yacht Club. We were warned that there would be a lot of Private drive signs along the way, but we persevered and found it. We walked part way out on the jetty to get pics. Very pretty setting.


Our neighbor has dubbed us the Honeymooners since it is our first trip into retirement together…so The Honeymooners kept driving up the scenic byway into Rockport, the little artist town that was actually used in filming The Proposal. We walked the little shops and of course bought fudge at The Fudgery and some Sea glass earrings and a beautiful glass hanging that you’ll have to come visit to see when We get home. We walked out on the jetty and just enjoyed the harbor here.


We did spot this lighthouse from a long way out…I don't know it’s name.and I am putting in this next pic in honor of Kendall and Maddie because we play a card game called Top Dog!


Then we had time to get in a bike ride. Our parking plans didn't work out so we parked back in Rockport and biked a 14 mile ride. Traffic was crazy and it had more hills than we bargained for. I felt badly for Wynn…all I had to do was hit the throttle. But I will admit I was a bit of a wreck by the time we got back. Traffic overall was good to us…but I still was very nervous!


On the way here, Google took us off the highway to avoid a wreck and guess where we ended up driving past? So Carissa, these two pics are for you.


Then we drove to Kennebunk and that's where I started this post. We found a place called The Pilot House for supper tonight. Wynn had his Lobster Roll and I had a burger without the bun and a salad. Tonight we will test the fudge for a nighttime snackeroo. Tomorrow we have more lighthouses to find in Portland and then the long drive to Bar Harbor. Bring on the Fall foliage! Goodnight! (Can you tell I had ice water in my glass?)
