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; no Instagram repeats. Must credit


June dandelions.


Checkley Point in June, at its most perilous.


Upstairs at Eastways in July.


The original #sunsetgrammer, in his element, late July.


Late July crew at the Black Point Inn. (Okay, one Instagram rerun.)


Jordan Pond, Acadia National Park, on a hike last weekend made possible when my brother and I ventured up the coast to Northeast Harbor on Mount Desert Island.

Another great summer in the land #twlsb. Now, commencing the long weekend before getting back to it next week in NYC. Catch you then.

    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)
