WASP Wednesday

I love Maine!

I first saw the beautiful state of Maine when I was 16, I lived in Blue Hill a town near Bar Harbor. My sophomore summer I lived in Camden. I've also spent a few long weekends in Prout's neck near Portland.  I think Maine is the most beautiful place in the States (but I can't claim to have seen all of our states). Alaska is stunning but the weather is a major detraction, while Maine boasts lovely weather. Last week I visited Hermes in Kennebunkport where we've been vacationing together for 5 summers. We've spotted tons of Bush's, antiqued, mud walked, dined on Hermes amazing food, sat on the beach and I catch up on all my magazines. If you've never been I highly suggest you add it to your list!

Collars Up!

  1. I love Maine, although we usually don't venture further north than York. Kennebunkport is on my list of places to go soon!

  5. I agree I like Maine as well. Visited on a New England cruise a few yrs ago. The ship docked in Portland and tendered at Bar Harbor. Both beautiful places.
    I must say that I thought Alaska was beautiful as well. Two different arenas these two states are though.

  6. It's on my list! In fact we planned to go a number of years ago so I called the Maine tourism people and they told me they would send me all sorts of information so we could plan our trip. They never did. So we didn't go there. We went to Vermont instead.

  8. I hope to get to Maine one day - it sounds amazing. Definitely a better alternative to the scorching weather we've had down south this summer!

  10. So beautiful! I love the scenery and nice summer temperatures. Love your picture. Someone once gave me a huge pair of red lobster earrings from Maine while I was doing a summer internship and I still treasure them.

  14. Maine is absolutely so lovely! I've only visited Bar Harbor and Rockland, but Kennebunkport sounds incredible too! If you ever get to Rockland, make sure to eat at Primo, it is amazing. My sister worked there with Chef Melissa Kelly. Delicious!

    So glad you're relaxing and enjoying the end of the summer Beth!! xoxo

  28. Would you believe that Husby and I only just visited Maine (Kennebunk) for the first time last year?! We LOVED it. As soon as the little one is big enough, we're going back.

  29. Dying to make it that far north for a visit sometime! I suppose, technically, I have been that far north, but through upstate New York, into Canada. Never into Maine. My in-laws went a few years ago & had the most beautiful photos to share. It looks lovely.

  32. Maine is AMAZING! I'd summer there every year if I could. We went to a wedding in Scarborough about a month ago and had the best time. But my favorite area by far is Bar Harbor. Love it up there!

    P.S. I quoted you on my blog today. :)
