We arrived in Kennebunkport, Maine, on September 19th and left on Wednesday, September 22.  Just when we thought we had stayed at some pretty remarkable campgrounds, they get better and better.  This campground was a great one.  If you ever travel in a motor home to Kennebunkport, definitely stay at Red Apple Campground.  It is only about five minutes from downtown Kennebunkport.  We all enjoyed staying there.

On Tuesday, (9/20), we decided to travel around the area and one of our first stops was Walker's Point, the home of the George H. W. Bush's.  They even have parking spaces so you can stop and take pictures of the house on the point.  We couldn't tell what was going on but a boat pulled up and a military boat came in too.  We didn't see the Bush's but we had hoped.

We continued around the shoreline and ended up at this beautiful beach. The houses reminded us of Long Beach.  We all enjoyed watching the surfers and the sea air.

After a little sightseeing of the area, we stopped at the Arundel Wharf Restaurant on the water.  It was the restaurant recommended by the owner of the RV park.  Great food.  More seafood, of course.  Then, with our tummies full, the guys went to a car museum in Wells and the ladies went shopping in Kennebunkport.

When we got back to the motor home, we got ready for dinner.  We had ordered lobster for dinner.  The owner arranged for lobsters, cooked and hot delivered to your site for $4.99 a pound.  We made the sides, melted the butter and chowed down.  "When in Rome!"  or I guess that's "When in Maine!".  Kaptain made a campfire and we were all set to kick back after our lobster dinner.

The next day (9/21), we went to Ogunquit and to Perkins Cove.  We parked the at the beginning of Marginal Way, the one mile walk along the shore.  Parking was kind of expensive but the walk was beautiful.  After our walk we took the trolley through town and back to the car.  We discussed having lunch at Barnacle Billy's because we were told the Bush's eat there sometimes.  However, we decided to eat at the Oarweed across the street and got a lovely table with an ocean view.  We ate more seafood, of course.

Before heading back to Kennebunkport, Shirley pointed out that there was a town, York, that she wanted to see.  We ended up at York Beach.  We got pics, Shirley got T-shirts and sweatshirts.

Our next stop was Nubble Lighthouse.  It was getting late and cold so we decided to take our pictures and hit the road and go home.

On September 22nd, we left Kennebunkport and drove to Foxboro, Massachusetts, which is near Boston.
