MP would travel anywhere in Maine for good bread. This Saturday, the Maine Grain Alliance is hosting its annual bread fair with over 60 food vendors from across New England. Even though Skowhegan is an hour-plus drive, the promise of skilled bakers offering wood-fired pizza, decadent pastries, and crusty baguettes is enough for MP to get the family in the car and go.

After two back-to-back travel weekends, our family decided to start a new summer tradition: Saturday morning breakfasts at a local beach. DP packed hard-boiled eggs, coffee, juice, croissants, and homemade strawberry jam. By 9:00 a.m., all of us were in bathing suits and ready to go.
We decided to visit one of our favorite spots: Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth. If you haven’t been, Kettle Cove is located at the smaller, quieter end of Crescent Beach. The parking lot is small, so getting there early is key. There is a rocky beach where children can explore the tide pools (CP#1 and #2 love to collect hermit crabs) plus an expansive grassy area that overlooks the cove. And what a view!
