On September 26, Shawn and John reached their twentieth wedding anniversary. To celebrate, they chose the following weekend for a trip to Kennebunkport, as they’ve done for several anniversaries before. They drove up Friday afternoon and arrived at the cozy Florida Room of the Captain Jefferds Inn. They were greeted by a chilled bottle of wine with a lovely plate of cheese and fruit snacks.

While enjoying their welcome snack, Shawn was presented with some anniversary bling to add a little sparkle to the weekend!

From there, it was a visit to their favorite bar in town, Federal Jack’s, which just happens to have been founded on the same day they got married!  That was followed by dinner in The Hurricane‘s lounge and a night cap at the Kennebunkport Inn‘s piano bar.

The weather was gloomy on Saturday, but they still enjoyed a leisurely drive along the coast culminating with lunch at perennial favorite Gritty McDuff’s in Portland’s Old Port.

They arrived back in Kennebunkport in time for some shopping – including, of course, the obligatory stop at Shawn’s favorite candle shop.

The focal point of the weekend (except maybe the bling) would be Saturday night dinner at the White Barn Inn. An expensive splurge, the White Barn makes it worth it with beautiful decor, friendly staff, stellar service, and awesome food. They had a great meal!

A few more brews at Federal Jack’s capped the evening before another nice stay at the Inn. Sunday morning was another spectacular breakfast before the drive home and back to reality.

A big thanks to Grams for staying with the boys and a hearty cheers to the next twenty years!
