I was lucky enough to spend a lovely weekend in New England a few weeks ago and managed to take a few photos along the way (which, for me, is no small feat  — I almost never think to take pictures when I’m out and about.  It seems I’ve only been making baby steps towards my New Year’s Resolution this year.) Despite the rainy weather we managed to do some sightseeing and get the full New England experience.

Here were my favorite parts, so I can be sure remember for my next visit:

  • Cape Neddick, Maine: Beautiful views of the cliffs and the lighthouse.  It was pretty overcast when we were there, but still great views, cute beach houses, and that awesome salty ocean smell!

  • Ogunquit, Maine:  Adorable!  Another beach town with lots of cute shops, seafood restaurants, fun boats, and a particularly pretty path along the ocean overlooking the rocky cliffs.

  • Portsmouth, New Hampshire: My favoritest (yeah, that’s a word) all of the places!  Old brick buildings with so much character and charm; small, friendly shops; and a hip artsy vibe.

I’d love to explore more of New England on another visit.  It’s just a quick flight to Boston from Washington and makes for an easy weekend trip.
