Kennebunkport weekend

I woke up to a beautiful view of the ocean on the second day of my weekend getaway to Kennebunkport. It was very windy and cold but we didn't care.  We had big plans for the day.

It was a beautiful Fall weekend, actually quite cool and windy but still beautiful.

The hotel is pet friendly which was not a problem for me because as you know I love animals! I did mind when the little yippy dog in the room next door barked every time someone walked by his/her door. Luckily, the room was at the end of the hall so not too much t…
