Christmas by the Sea

Last week after our last tour from Japan my
husband and I went on a little holiday to 
Kennebunkport Maine. We have been there
a few times before and enjoy it in all
seasons but to me it is especially beautiful at
Christmas time..
The first two weekends in December they
have a Christmas Prelude with lots going on
and the whole town is beautifully decorated.
It is aprox. a 10 hour drive from our home.

                                                         This little seaside town is so charming.

                                                         Lobsters and buoys decorate their huge tree in
                                                         Dock Square.
                                                        I love all the beautiful New England style homes.
                                                   We always enjoy walks around the town.

                                                                  A Christmas tree farm.
                                                                 Love all the little shops.

                                                    I was so happy to wake up to a nice dusting of
                                                    snow the last two days we were there.

                                                     Evening walks are my favorite with all the
                                                     Christmas lights.

                                       I hope you enjoyed a  Christmas by the Sea tour
                                                  with me.We toured some lovely Inns while we were
                                                  there as well as the White Columns Historic home all
                                                  decorated for Christmas....all beautiful!

                                                 Oh! and wait til you see the beautiful transferware
                                                 dishes I came home with...later!
                                                  If you would like to see last December's trip to
                                                  Old Quebec click here.
                                                                          Thank you for visiting me.

I wish I would have know you were there! Our beautiful New England is special at Christmas time. It does resemble a lot of PEI, where we had our first visit this past summer! Thanks for a beautiful blog, here from New England!

Thanks you for the beautiful tour--it's like wonderland! That red and white station wagon really brings back old memories. My family had one very similar to that one. We called it The Fire Engine! It was full to capacity with my parents and 5 kids.

Dear Carolyn,
I love the pictures. We was over ten years ago in Kennebunkport, it's a nice town. And to see these charming pictures bring some memories back.
The decorations are great.
Please excuse my bad english.
I wish you a Merry Christmas!
Greetings Karina
