East Coast Summer Series: Cape Neddick, Maine

IMG_4540

This post is the third of four East Coast Summer Series posts about my August trip to Maine. The last post will be Old Orchard Beach coming September 14th.  Check out my first post, Portland + Seaside Stops here and my second post on Cape Elizabeth and beautiful Portland Head Lighthouse here.

After spending two amazing days in Portland, mamacita, Colleen and I drove to the southern coast of Maine to spend two days in Cape Neddick, found in York, Maine. Home to two beautiful beaches – Short Sands and Long Sands Beach, as well as a number of seaside attractions – Cape Neddick is most well known for its Nubble Lighthouse.

And we all know how I am drawn to lighthouses.

While the weather wasn’t as epic as it was in Portland – we had some rain and some Stephen King novel caliber fog – we made the best of it with a trip up to Kennebunkport for some shopping + lunch, and as per our MO, we took several hundred photos playing on the beaches. We also spent at least an hour in a trance watching salt water toffee creations being made at the famous Goldenrod Kisses.

Note to anyone travelling to Cape Neddick: stop at Goldenrod Kisses. 

Here are all of my favorite snapshots from this part of our Maine adventure! With some East Coast Mermaid tanks in action!
