First Trip to York

We spent the weekend in York, Maine to celebrate our friends’ wedding! Usually we stay in Ogunquit so it was nice to have a reason to try somewhere new. We stayed at the Union Bluff Hotel and had a great view of the water and the beach.

We got salt water taffy from The Goldenrod, had pizza at Woody’s, and grabbed ice cream from Wicked Good Ice Cream.

Our friends rented a house right on the water for the celebration. It had a million rooms, a million and one balconies, and ocean on 3 1/2  sides. It felt like the edge of the world. It was magical.

It was a super fun weekend and we’re already talking about going back!

New Years in Ogunquit

We’ve been up to Ogunquit, Maine a couple of times in the late spring/ early summer and it’s beautiful. We love walking the beach and Marginal Way, the restaurants are amazing, and even though there are people everywhere we’re still able to relax. My in-laws have been known to spend New Years there and since this was the first time I wouldn’t have to work early on New Year’s Day, we decided to head up for a long weekend. Turns out, my in-laws had the same idea! And Norm’s aunts and a couple of cousins! It was a real party!

We stayed in this room and loved it. We had a great view of the water, could hear the ocean at night, and had a little fire which made it extra cozy.

We walked the beach on Sunday because Norm had to work on Monday and would be glued to his computer for most of the day. The idea was that we’d go together on Sunday, and then I’d walk it again on Monday with my mother-in-law and her sisters. But then I wore the wrong shoes and blistered my heels, so I stayed behind. They walked much further than we did so while I’m sorry I missed it, my heels were not.

from our room, I thought all this sea foam was seagulls

They had a lobster trap tree on the lawn and turned the lights on at night. Contrary to rumor, they did not use it as a bonfire on New Year’s Eve. Also, I started that rumor.


New Year’s Day was a little blustery but you can’t beat the whitecap waves!

It was definitely a great way to ring in 2019.
