Weekend in Kennebunkport

Good morning! This week is off to a great start because it’s a four day week for me :D. On Friday I’m flying to the great state of Texas for my sister’s bachelorette weekend! On top of that, the following week is a short week and my last week of work!

Luke and I spent this past weekend in Kennebunkport, Maine.

It was wonderful! The weather was absolutely perfect and, as usual, Teddy had a blast!

There are not too many things that make me happier than watching Teddy play on the beach! I think it’s his own personal dog heaven :).

When we weren’t at the beach, our weekend was filled with reading, good wine and good food! On Saturday night, we went to one of our favorite restaurants (if not our favorite) in Kennebunkport, Bandaloop. As usual, it didn’t disappoint!

To start, we shared the “Fresh Chiffonade of Kale”. We order this salad often, and it even inspired me to recreate my own Raw Kale Ribbon Salad.

For an entree, I had the swordfish special, which included a delicious blueberry barbecue sauce made from fresh Maine blueberries. It was delicious!

Luke had the tuna ceviche, which was good except that most of it was covered in wasabi aoli. I absolutely hate wasabi. I think it tastes like rubbing alcohol. It happens to be really strong, so if something is even slightly touching it, you’ll taste it! I was only able to find a couple wasabi free bites, but what I had was quite tasty!

For dessert, we walked to one of the new ice cream shops in town that serves “artisan” ice cream. We shared a cup with two flavors – star anise blood orange and dark chocolate. Double yum.

Our nights ended with wine while we watched the sunset from the porch. The crescent moon this weekend was so pretty!

Every time we leave Kennebunk, my heart breaks just a little. It’s one of those places that is so beautiful and perfect that you never want to leave.

But alas, all good weekends must come to an end!

  1. Looks like a great weekend! Popcorn has never been to the beach because I’m a little nervous that he’ll chase after all of the people and get lost haha. But Teddy looks so happy there! Does he chase the waves?

      Haha Teddy is deathly afraid of the water actually, so he doesn’t chase them. He runs away from them! Sometimes he will be chasing a dog and the dog will go in the water and Teddy will stop dead in his tracks – it’s pretty funny!

  2. Maine in the summer is so beautiful, love the seafood there this time of year. Your puppy looks truly happy on the beach!

  3. Wow your pictures are stunning and I love your dog 🙂 Looks like you had a great time at the beach!!

  4. Those pictures of Teddy on the beach are adorable. Is he a natural with the water? Mine absolutely HATES it and I’m wondering how I can get her to be more excited about swimming!

      Haha nope – he hates the water! He literally runs in the other direction if the tide comes towards him! We’ve taken him canoeing before and forced him to swim. He can swim pretty well – he just doesn’t like it! Poodles are supposed to like the water too, oh well.

      Thanks! I’m going to the hill country – staying in Fredericksburg and going to a bunch of vineyards 🙂

  10. omg those action shots of Teddy are way too cute! Nice, relaxing weekends are the best, and I think most of us don’t have them often enough. Have fun this coming weekend at the bachelorette!

  11. Okay that’s it, I’m coming to kidnap Teddy. 😉 What a cutie! I especially love the last photo of him prancing along the sand. Oh, to be a dog! If it were socially acceptable for humans to act the same way, maybe we’d all be slightly happier? ;-p

    The meal you shared with Luke at Bandaloop looks absolutely incredible. That kale salad–omg, yum. I’m not a *huge* fan of wasabi, but I can tolerate it in small doses. I think my mouth would be on fire if I ate the amount that was drizzled on Luke’s tuna ceviche!
