If you are ever find yourself in the Kennebunkport, Maine area do try to stop by Cape Porpoise Harbor. I have to warn you, parking is extemely limited in this whole area so you may just end up driving through, but it's gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous.
In the above photo we're looking out to sea and at the Goat Island lighthouse, built in 1859.
It was a bright but cold day making the water sparkle like diamonds. Nice that we happened upon the area during low tide too.
I intend on heading back up to shoot some more of the local area once it warms up. Also while my husband and I were in town very little in the way of shops and restaurants were open. How I longed for a bowl of clam or seafood chowder! It was not to be.
This immediate area is really all about fishing, though there are two small restaurants in the harbor, both closed for the season. Not sure where you would park in the summertime to eat at either one but I would imagine there might be a tour bus that comes through, or you could walk, or even ride a bike!
I still have more photos to share with you which I'll do soon!
