This past weekend I was in Ogunquit, Maine. It’s one of my favorite spots in the whole world! There is a lovely bed and breakfast there called The Ogunquit Inn. That’s where I stayed. It was quite lovely- I had a room in the front of the house and at night I could hear the ocean… wonderful!!


This is Herbert. He was a little unhappy about how close I got. But not so unhappy that he was willing to abandon his breakfast :)


Sunrise over the Atlantic… isn’t it beautiful?


And what trip to Maine would be complete without heading to a lighthouse? This is the Portland Head light in Cape Elizabeth, ME.

Following, in no particular order, are some of my favorite pictures from my trip… :)









I ate lobster pie, lobster quiche, lobster pizza and lobster rolls. I also came home looking a bit like a lobster due to not being vigilant with the sunscreen, but it’s faded now :)

It was an unbelievable weekend- just what I needed after these past several months! I spent hours just sitting on the beach, watching the waves and listening to them crash. Add in the foghorns and the seagulls… I still hear them in my dreams :)

I am already planning to go back in September!


  1. How amazing for you!! Sounds like a very restorative weekend. There is definitely something magical about the sound of crashing waves. Your photos are wonderful, thanks for sharing.

  2. my family and i love going to spend part of our summer in downeast maine.....it is so beautiful there. i love the pictures of the lighthouse that you got.

  3. Hey, I live in Maine! Let me know when you'll be coming in September and maybe we can meet up and do some fabric "browsing". There's a great shop in York and one in Sanford as well! Not too far from Ogunquit at all.
