Kennebunkport 2013

Posted: September 30, 2013 in Anniversary, Vacation

Shawn and John celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary with a trip back to the Captain Jefferds Inn in Kennebunkport – the same place they had stayed last year. They were once again warmly welcomed and felt cozy and comfortable in their “Hideaway” room.

We drove up on Friday night after a soccer game, checked into the Inn, and walked off into town for a casual dinner and some great beer at Federal Jack’s. – our favorite bar since it was founded on the day of our marriage.

Unlike last year, the weather this time was perfect!  Warm and sunny was the order of the day on Saturday and we made the best of it with a long stroll on Goose Rocks Beach.

Then it was back to the Inn to borrow some bicycles. We took a leisurely ride down Gooch’s Beach and then found ourselves at Pedro’s for lunch. Just around the corner from the cruise ship-swollen throngs on Main Street, Pedro’s provided a relaxing patio lunch with friendly staff and great Mexican food.

We finished our bike ride at the mouth of the Kennebunk River on Arundel Beach watching the fishing boats returning to port and the kayakers and sailors playing in the afternoon sun.

A little time watching the Boston College football game at Alison’s Restaurant was followed by an incredible dinner at On The Marsh Bistro and a nightcap back at Federal Jack’s.

The Sunday morning fog was just burning off as we finished another three course breakfast at the Inn and started for home and reality.  We love the Kennebunkport area and know this won’t be our last visit! (More pictures here.)
