A day trip to idyllic Kennebunkport ..What to do

 

Kennebunkport

 If you happened to read my blog post last week about Portland, yes, on my Portland trip, we took a day tour of Kennebunkport. About 40 minutes from Portland in southern Maine, Kennebunkport is an idyllic coastal town. A picturesque, breezy town with beautiful waterfronts, cascading narrow roads, and gorgeous houses. Visiting Kennebunkport can make anyone happy, whether you want to rent a bike or sail in the water, eat lobster, walk in the beautiful square with melting ice cream, or wind shopping in the colorful stores and boutiques. 


What to do









Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport


  Experience the spirit of Dock Square - The lifeline and spirit of Kennebunkport is the Dock Square, with plenty of eating choices, from lobster rolls to natural ice cream, and an ample great eatery. Explore one-of-a-kind shopping and art galleries. Don't forget to click a photo with the Kennebunkport sign on the Lanigan Bridge. It is touristy but worth clicking. 








Cape Porpoise - If Dock Square is the spirit of Kennebunkport, then Cape Porpoise is the Solace of Kennebunkport. A quiet escape with a gorgeous waterfront, the best view of the Goat Island lighthouse with few eating spots,. Cape Porpoise is a fishing village with a wide spread of views, floating boathouses, narrow roads, and whatnot.






Walker's Point—Walker's Point is truly depicted as a quintessential coastal Maine Charm. You can take a drive, and there are stopping points where you can park your car or bike and take a glimpse of deep blue water and rugged coast, along with gorgeous homes and former president George Bush's vacation home. Don't miss out; stop at St. Ann's Church lookout point to watch the sailboats.


Seashore Trolley Museum - Riding through history back in time with the guide in the vintage trolley is fun, learning, and relaxing. It features and displays trolleys and buses of a bygone era on huge grounds with a walkable area. You can also visit the gift shop with many collectibles, books, etc. It is one of the fine places to go with family and kids.

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying. My time is all occupied by them. Taking to them, playing with them, take them to the library, reading stories and most importantly cooking their favorite food. Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1. My favorite color - Navy blue, peach and off-white. Not that I don't wear any other color, but those colors are readily available in my wardrobe. 2. My favorite outfit - In western I love to wear a crisp white top and blue jeans. I know very casual. In Indian, I love sarees. Mostly, I love handwoven and handwork ones. I love salwar kurta too. You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February. The high ceiling, ivory walls, earthy light shades stroked a tropical vibe and the food spoke a lot about Mexico and Latin America. As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but
