Saturday Snapshot...Anniversary in Maine Part I


It's been a busy year, so my Saturday Snapshot participation has reduced. What with all the expanded duties in my new role at work, my husband and I also found weekends were full as well. We finally took some time off a couple of months ago and headed to Boston to visit his family, and then spent our wedding anniversary in Maine. Can you guess where in Maine I wanted to go? Since I'm a Stephen King fan, I first wanted to head to Bangor, Maine to see the author's house, but it was much too far away. Instead, we settled on Ogunquit, which is a little over an hour or so from Boston. It also happens to be where the character I hated the most in The Stand was from. Yes, that's right. I hated Frannie, but Ogunquit is a resort town, so why not? We loved every minute we were in this beautiful neck of the woods. It was an overcast and rainy day when we got there, but I actually loved it. It really added to the atmosphere. I can't wait to go again and I hope it is cloudy and rainy once more.

For more Saturday Snapshots or to participate, please visit Alyce with At Home With Books.


This is our view from the balcony. We chose to stay in the older section of Beachmere Inn and I'm so glad that we did. If you go to their website, you'll see a longer building behind a smaller one that is positioned right at the water. That's the building we stayed in. A nicer group of people on staff you will not find, my friends. This is customer service at its finest.

  1. Happy Anniversary! That looks gorgeous - I'm surprised there's grass so close to the ocean.

  4. This looks like a lovely place. Vacationing on Lake Superior I learned to love the rainy days, too, with steel gray sky and white-capped deep water.

    Happy Anniversary!

  5. Maine is one of my favorite places to visit. My best friend bought a cabin in Boothbay Harbor this past year. I haven't had the chance to visit, but I can't wait! Beautiful photos!

  6. Awesome view! It's fun when a love of reading intersects with real life. I bet Stephen King's house would have been... interesting!

    And... Happy Anniversary.

  7. These photos are beautiful! So glad you finally got away...and to a beautiful place! Maine is my favorite state, I love so many places there and Ogunquit is so pretty. I haven't stayed at the Beachmere Inn but I think I'll have to stay over on my way to my uncle's in York. It looks and sounds like you chose the right building, what a view!

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. That's exactly how I imagined Maine to look from reading Stephen King! If we ever get there, I will certainly be looking to book the Victorian. Gorgeous :-)
