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!

Making Whoopie

Friday, May 21, 2010

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!

Summer Dreamin'

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Brakes, check. Tubes, check. Vintage basket, check.
We took advantage of our warm spring weather and readied our beach cruisers for some sunset rides around the ocean. Don't forget the picnic blanket!

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!


Maple Sunday

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

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.

Dock Square Coffee wakes up!

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

We know we are coming to the end of another long Maine winter when our local coffee shop finally opens for the season. Hooray for our favorite latte and a few folks to chat with!
