Summer Travel: Maine

The place I spend the most time in the summer outside of NYC is Maine. My family has a house on Prouts Neck, a small colony on the Atlantic Ocean between Kennebunkport and Portland. I’ve been coming here my whole life, as my father, grandfather, and great-grandfather did before me. I’m typing these words from the screened porch of my house, readying for the Labor Day weekend.

Here now, to round out August, photos from this summer in Maine. (Bonus: all content original to LS.com; no Instagram repeats. Must credit LS.com.)

    Ooh. The upstairs at Eastways is where I’d write the great novel, if I had one in me

    You and Elizabeth inspired me to do some photo blogging today

    Secret: it’s way easier with the WP app on your phone (if you use your phone as your only camera as I do)
