Garden Tour Kennebunkport
Sunday, August 1, 2010
We have always wanted to do the yearly Garden Tour in Kennebunkport where garden owners open the doors to their special secret gardens and let us all have a peak. There were many inspiring moments but we were really swept in by this cape porpoise rock garden designed to feel like a river passing through a mountain. So lovely!

Hearty yet delicate, the whoopie pie is a sinful treat we here at Daytrip Society worship.
Inspired by a new cookbook by Sarah Billingsly and Amy Treadwell entitled, "Whoopie Pies", we made a special pilgrimage to a local institution, The Landing Store, who has been serving up this cream filled east coast classic for as long as we can remember.
For an exotic whoopie experience we recommend trying one of Sarah and Amy's recipes, like pistachio-cardamom, candied ginger, or lemon mascarpone!

Hoop House Inspiration
Wednesday, April 21, 2010
We were given a sneak peak of a neighbor's "hoop house" and couldn't believe our eyes. Bountiful greens of varieties we never knew existed all growing in arched cold frame allowing us homegrown backyard salads we could never imagine in a Maine garden this time of year. Dreamy. Thanks for the inspiration Lauren!

We are still thinking about the smell of maple syrup and those delicious maple donuts from "Maple Sunday" a few weeks back. This celebration of all things maple comes around every year on the fourth sunday in March. Sugar houses around Maine open their doors and show up how they make syrup and allow us to do some tasting too! After a long winter - it's the perfect time of year to get the family out on a fun daytrip.
