This was our 5th vacation in the Kennebunk/Kennebunkport, Maine area and we’ve always had a wonderful time. This year, however, the kids said it was the best vacation ever. What was on the agenda: a fishing trip aboard the Allyson, surfing lessons, The Children’s Museum in Portland, and, of course, our favorite tide pool spot.
