February in Maine…by the looks of the people and dogs walking along the beach you’d probably assume this was Spring or Fall? It was February 8th, cold and windy and I had a showing at the 1802 House Bed & Breakfast (which has amongst the most fantastic owner’s quarters of any inn I’ve seen)
. Naturally I combined business with pleasure (why not, it’s part of my job!) and my husband came with me. He dropped me off at the inn and headed off to the beach to take some photos. This was taken just around from the famous Dock Square, home of two of my favorite galleries, Abacus
. We ate a late lunch at Alisson’s
and enjoyed a heaping plate of fried clams and local micro brews (for me, Riptide Red
, my husband, Shipyard Export
). Kennebunkport has really become a year round destination, with shops and restaurants open throughout the winter, giving bed and breakfasts true reason to stay open in the off season.
