Welcome to Kennebunkport

It was a real treat to return to Kennebunkport, though mainly because it was a chilly March morning.  This is a truly beautiful village sprawled out along the coast, but the twisty layout is quite impractical to support any serious volume of auto traffic and this place is a nightmare when the tourists descend.  I rarely ventured into the town until the tourists vacated, but since I worked in Kennebunk for a couple years I certainly was no stranger.

I guess if you were staying at one of the many luxurious B&B’s and could simply stroll about town it would be remarkable, but attempting to drive through Kennebunkport between May and October is an unmitigated pain in the ass.

  On this chilly morning in March, however, it was delightful to stroll about and capture the town with photographs.  I ducked into a coffee shop at one point to warm up, a pleasant pause along a pleasant investigation.

With the Bradbury Mountain hike scuttled I had bonus time, and chose to swing past Walker’s Point to add a review for TB, and then proceeded on to Cape Porpoise to rendezvous with Mike for lunch.  The Cape Porpoise ramble is covered in the next entry, but Mike and I returned to Kennebunkport afterwards so he could do a ‘walk through’ of a  Kennebunkport B&B.  Mike is a former boss who runs a travel club based in Portsmouth, NH – he frequently checks out properties and I happily accepted his invite to scope out the magnificent Captain Lord Mansion, resulting in another TB review opportunity.
