My husband and I decided to give ourselves a Christmas gift of going away for a night. We decided upon the Boat House in Kennebunkport, ME. It was not cheap, but we felt like we veer being totally spoiled then entire time.
We went up on Saturday, Jan 18 during the snow. We had a slow ride up but it was well worth the drive. It snowed the entire time we were in Kennebunkport, finally subsiding when we reached York on our way home.
I had my new camera (Canon 5D) with me, so stopping to take photos in the snow was a must. The first few shots are taken from our room and our balcony. I was quite delighted to have a pinky schooner, I think, outside my room.
The shot of the blue light is from the restaurant, David’s, on the first floor of the Boat House. I had an absolutely amazing meal there – an “open ravioli” (large square of pasta) loaded with a wonderfully seasoned ricotta, large pieces
of lobster, shrimps and scallops with snow peas and some shredded cabbage, topped with a sherried cream sauce. It was to die for!. Despite the continuing snow on Sunday, we traipsed around and enjoyed the Maine seacoast.
The snow on the rocks and the rocks, trees and shrubs was so beautiful! The last couple of shots are of the Nubble Light in York, always a nice spot to stretch the legs.
