My New England Vacation - Kennebunkport, ME
Our next stop was Kennebunkport, Maine, a beautiful little town mostly known for shipbuilding and fishing. The people are very friendly and laid back. We stayed one night at the White Barn Inn, a very unique inn.
There were some interesting fixtures at the inn such as the hand-painted furniture, beautiful garden and my favorite; a sleigh bed for a good night's sleep. I had a nice steak dinner at the restaurant. The restaurant was quite unique, featuring high-beam ceilings with big windows. I didn't get a chance to take advantage of their spa.

On our first day, we rented some bikes and took advantage of some of the various cycling trails on the island with a great ocean view.
We ate at the Hooked Restaurant on the first day; I ordered Broiled Flounder Stuffed with Lobster Crab & Prawns and Cheesecake Crumble for dessert.
On the second day, we chose Nancy's Restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. Their food is unbelievable; I ordered one of their specialty dishes - Lobster Mac & Cheese. I must have gained 10 lbs by the time we left but well worth it.

My New England Vacation – Newport, RI
The next stop of my New England vacation was the beautiful and charming town of Newport, Rhode Island. While some of the town has changed over the years, there's still plenty to see and explore from the golden age of society.
One house that I enjoyed touring was the Chanler at Cliff Walk. It was built in 1873 and sits along the rugged coastline. The guest rooms are decorated in either French or Greek furnishings and have heated bathroom floors, wet bars, with vintage prints and original oil paintings. From above you get a great oceanside view of spectacular boats along with numerous mansions.

Our rooms featured cast-iron beds and claw-foot tubs. If you ever visit the area, I highly recommend staying here; make sure you book early to ensure a room.

My New England Vacation – Plymouth, MA
On the last three days back at my brother’s house, I took it easy relaxing in the lawn chair with a glass of ice tea. Two days prior before my departure back home, my brother and his wife took me to the historical town of Plymouth, MA; it was only a 25-mile drive from his house.
The town features Plymouth Rock where the Pilgrims first landed; it is actually a rock. Plymouth is a charming New England town with lots of sightseeing opportunities too numerous to mention.
We toured the Mayflower II that is anchored in Plymouth Harbor. The tour features people dressed in Pilgrim clothing and acting out the voyage and landing of the Mayflower. When you actually get to tour the ship, you realize just how small the Mayflower was and how it could hold over 100 people.
There was one embarrassing moment when one of the actors was telling us how sick she was from the harsh winter months. I told her that I hope that her cold will get better soon before realizing that it was part of her

    We didn 't arrive until around 7.30 pm and were pleased to learn the restaurant was open until 9.00 pm. Of course, you will be served at any time until then; when we came back from a post-dinner walk there were still diners in the restaurant at 10.00 pm. The menu is quite varied but there is an emphasis on regional (Frankish) specialities and seasonal produce. Carnivores may be interested in the steak options, but vegetarians are catered for with a few different options. I chose a pork dish that came with delicious spätzle; our driver had a steak with blue cheese; and my partner chose some kind of local sausages.…
