I hope you enjoy […]

Winterport Winery & Penobscot Bay Brewery

Winterport Winery and Penobscot Bay Brewery I discovered the Winterport Winery and the Penobscot Bay Brewery not long after moving to Maine – of course Willow is from Winterport, so she’s known about it for years 🙂 I used to drive down Route One, and just meander my way down, checking out many antique shops and views along the way. (you can see a great […]

Don’t Let Your Maine Summer Slip Away

I am reflecting on how to take advantage of the rest of the Maine Summer. Angus King recently said “Summer lingers, but cool mornings are a portent. Remember, however, September is our secret”.  If you are not following Senator King on Instagram, you should consider doing so- He rides his Harley around the state and showcases everything that our great state has to offer and […]

Weekend Warrior’s Guide to Maine Beaches

Scarborough Beach State Park

Hi all, it’s Willow….. Beach season is here, and we are beach bums at the core.  Scarborough Beach State Park is by far one of the best beaches in Maine.  This beach is one of Maine’s great surf beaches and offers a more rustic feel than other beaches in Southern Maine (Read: Outhouses) and has a very chill vibe.  I have enjoyed coming to this […]

Mason’s Brewing Company Brunch

Jess and DD were SUPPOSED to go hiking today (Willow is hiking in southern Maine with a friend) but it was cold. And sleeping in and BLOODY MARYS sounded SO much more appealing –  so we decided that our adventure for today would be BRUNCH. Jess and DD went to Judy’s (a dive bar with breakfast) last weekend, but DD is a crazy Bloody Mary critic and they just did […]
