one of many things i've learned about my new home is that maine really does summer right. it hardly gets above 90 degrees, there's usually a nice breeze coming off the ocean and with miles and miles of coastline a beach is never too far away. this after all is "vacationland" people come here for the summer. knowing this fact, my wife and i decided not to leave for a honeymoon right after the wedding but rather save that trip for when we find four feet of snow in our front yard. we did however want to have a few days to relax so we decided to head to our favorite town, boothbay harbor.
i know there are a million towns yet to be discovered in this state, but there's just something about boothbay we both love. spending three days at the spruce point inn ended up being the perfect "mini moon." i wish i could tell you about all the adventures we had but honestly the whole trip was spent sleeping in, relaxing, chilling and most importantly not talking about wedding planning. in other words, it was perfect.
eventually we'll take an "official" honeymoon, but for two people trying to make maine their home, boothboy harbor was the perfect spot to start married life.
