Travel the World Wednesday: Coastal Maine

Happy Travel the World Wednesday!  My husband and I just returned from an early anniversary vacation, and we definitely have a new favorite place.  We went to Cape Elizabeth, Maine (just south of Portland, Maine). Everything was so relaxing, peaceful, and just beautiful.  The very first day we were there I kept saying "I don't wanna leave!" I would for sure buy a summer home here if I ever could afford it!

So pack your bags, we're traveling to Coastal Maine!...

I loved putting this Maine Etsy treasury together because I found so many paintings and photographs of places we had just visited. This is a great collection of truly talented etsians, please feel free to click around the treasury as it is active!

And here are just a few photos from our vacation. Can you tell our little Meeko is our baby boy? We kinda like him a lot (and he just turned 5!)....

Thanks for traveling with us today! Have you ever been to Maine? Have you ever been brave enough to visit in the winter?

  4. I had the chance to go to Maine back in July 2001. I was in and around the Portland area too. And, no I am not brave enough for their winters. Maine is a beautiful state! I enjoyed it very much. Got your card BTW, and thank you buddy. I enjoy having a crafty friend to send/receive card to and from. :)

  5. This is just lovely! I want to go to Maine! Thanks for putting in my headband!
