Sep 5, 2019 - Kennebunkport, Maine

Had to clean up the pantry, as we had a petro pack orange juice container spring a leak. Rubbed through from all the bouncing around. Hadn't noticed the leak, but had been wondering why we had so many fruit flys in the pantry. Quite a mess!! Wound up cleaning and organizing the pantry and the fridge. Turns out there was also water in the krisper in the fridge as a drainage pipe was plugged and the defrost water overflowed. Made a salad and cooked a pot of green bean soup. Had lunch at the rv. After lunch drove south down the coast to...

Sep 12, 2016 - Kennebunkport ME

September 11 Moved up the coast to Kennebunkport ME. It is on the coast about 25 miles north of the border with New Hampshire. President Bush (the older one) has a house on a point here. You can see it from a point across an inlet. Will look around more tomorrow. We will be here for 3 days then move over to Vermont. September 12 Went exploring today. We saw the Bush Compound and a couple other local sites here in Kennebunkport then rode down the coast so Dianna could check out Nubble Lighthouse. The RV park has a deal with a local company...

Sep 12, 2016 - Kennebunkport, ME

Kennebunkport and the Lower Village of Kennebunk lie between the banks of the Kennebuck River and the Atlantic. The 'Port' on the river's east and the Lower Village on the west. We visited The Kennebunks today (Monday) and it seems the residents of Kennebunkport (3,500) are outnumbered by tourists! The colorful historic waterfront buildings are upscale shops, galleries and restaurants. We found an shop, Divots and Dogs, which carried merchandise for a multitude of breeds and metal whirligigs! Lucky us, they had Schipperke merchandise and...

Sep 5, 2016 - Day 9-kennebunkport

No internet Eek. Withdrawal. In kennebunkport today instead of Boston, due to storm. Smooth ride so far. Went on a five hour tour of Portland and kennebunkport. Beautiful country. Drove by the Bush Estate, summer home of President Bush 43 and all the little Bushes. Had lobster sandwiches and crab cakes for lunch. We just did a load of laundry and now are sitting on our balcony in Casco Bay watching the boats go by. Very calming. Told Kent that when we win the lottery we might have to buy a summer home here. Went to a Motown show last...

Bucket Trip #2

Aug 4, 2014 - Kennebunks and southern coast of Maine

What a busy few days we had on this next leg of our trip! And then we were on the road again – northeast to coastal Maine for a couple weeks. After stopping at the Maine Welcome Center to pick up lots of brochures, we arrived at Bentley’s Saloon and Campground in Arundel, Maine. This campground has a biker saloon in the front part of their property and an RV park in the back. The park is surrounded by forest, but the sites are pretty much open in much of the park. There is a very nice large bathhouse/laundry building and we noted quite a...

Oct 9, 2013 - They really gotcha!

GPS on, check! Set to avoid Toll Roads, check! Wow, what a trip. They really gotcha coming and going out here in the east with their toll roads. We didn't get a super fast start today, but really? I don't think we left town but for about 15 miles or so. The rest of the driving was all city! It wasn't all bad though. We did enjoy "some" nice scenery. And we had a fun lunch with our friends, Norval and Joan, in Kennebunkport, Maine. Above are some pictures of that area.

Oct 8, 2013 - Hobnobbing with the Bushes

Kennebunkport, ME Today's adventures started with a return to the US. Crossing the border was a breeze this time. Our stop at the duty-free store took longer than the border check. We drove on to Bangor, Maine, home of Stephen King of horror story fame. Because it would be intrusive for busloads of people to come stare and our tour guide would get in trouble, we all got off of the bus a block away and ambled on both sides of the street in twos and threes, looking casual. Surely no one noticed that every one of us had name tags, cameras,...

Aug 5, 2013 - Old Orchard Beach, Kennebunkport, Portland Head Lighthouse

What a beautiful day with 66 degrees and a high of 78. We drove to Old Orchard Beach to see the ocean. This beach is a destination for Canadians. We could tell!!! It was close to Ken's where we wanted to eat. Ken's is a local place for clam cakes and lobster rolls. Both were tasty. A drive to Kennebunkport, took us for a search for the President's house. Patrick said that if the Texas flag was flying he was home...we saw the flag!! Barbara must not have received our email to let us visit. The last stop was the most photographed lighthouse...

Aug 19, 2012 - A busy day in Kennebunkport, Maine

Started out the day with a trip to the Seashore Trolley Museum. The museum began in 1939 when 8 college men purchased the Biddeford and Saco RR car #31 to save it from destruction. The New England Electric Railway Historical Society was founded in 1941 and owns and operates Seashore Trolley Museum. They have a great museum that tells the whole history of trolleys. They have over 250 cars from all over the world. Great place to take your family. They take the passengers on a 2.5 mile trip and there are 3 different cars you can ride. You can...
