an escape

to Maine
to celebrate 19 years of marriage
and plenty of birthdays between us...
enquiring minds want to know, so here are some details.
In a nutshell, we had a great time.this is our hotel, right on the coast in Ogunquit.
It was also right on the 'Marginal Way'
which is a lovely walk along the rocky coastline for about a mile or soand we truly did have a room with a view...this is us 20 years ago in 1988.
(...haven't changed a bit!)
While in Maine, we found some fun shops.
This one was a converted church. Stained glass windows and all.
This one was just fun.

and this one was just for adventure...we found a couple of graveyards to peruse.
this one was in Kennebunk.
And for November, the walk on the beach was really pleasant.

Our hotel was called the Beachmere Inn. Fabulous.
Happy Anniversary, Mr. W.
And thanks for a great escape.

I'd say a GREAT escape!
Classic thriftiness at the Hutchins store! I would expect no less.

What an awesome adventure! Maine is one of the prettiest states in the country. I love the rocky shores and the little villages that look like they haven't changed in 100 years.
We used to camp in Bar Harbor every summer, it was dad's favorite vacation spot.

I am so jealous!!! What a great place and it was so clear and beautiful. Michael is mumbling in the other room looking at it and saying, Roger at the beach, what a sacrifice. I love your wedding picture (the veil was stunning,I need a front view too)and what was the picture of you in blue, so cute!

What wonderful pictures, Jen. The hotel was gorgeous, too. Glad you had such a wonderful trip. You both deserved time away with each other.
