Maybe it’s all of the snow we’ve been having lately, but MP finds herself daydreaming about spring break. While it would be lovely to go someplace tropical, our budget demands we find a getaway that doesn’t require a plane ticket. And for this family, vacation is really about a change of pace. With that idea in mind, we decided to visit Rockland for a few days last April. The small city, located in midcoast Maine, has everything a family could want in a vacation — beautiful spaces to explore, noteworthy restaurants, shopping and two art museums.

We took advantage of the Family Vacation Special at the Samoset Resort in nearby Rockport. The historic resort is located on the Penobscot Bay and offers spacious rooms with cozy beds and terry robes, relaxed dining and most importantly—for our kids anyway—a heated, indoor pool that makes a person on staycation feel as if she’s in Florida. For kids, the resort also has a game room, movies, and crafts, so there is always something to do, even when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

Finally! We are back from a busy summer break that included finalizing a big project (details in a future post), entertaining houseguests, road trips, and all variety of camps for the kids. While our family adores summer in Maine, we consider September, with its golden sunshine and mild temperatures, one of the best months of the year.

On this sunny March Friday, with the promise of warmer days ahead, it’s nice to recall last summer. A highlight of our August was filming a short piece as Maine Insiders for the Maine Department of Tourism. The two-day shoot took us from Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park in Freeport to Popham Beach and all of our favorite places in between.
