Katie has planned a getaway night in Kennebunk a few weeks ago. We had intended to ride our bikes along the Eastern Trail, but the weather
and not really feeling a 30 mile ride turned this into a Mini Adventure.
Early in the afternoon we made our way to Kennebunk which is about a 30 minute drive from home. We did not have a plan for the day and just winged it. I was hoping to shop at Ramblers Way, a local wool clothing store, but found the store vacant much to my dismay. Turns out they are now located in Portland, so we’ll have to visit next time we’re downtown.
We still were feeling our inner Wool-ite and decided to make our way to Kittery Trading Post. Fortunately, KTP had a great selection of wool products and we ended up with a nice haul of wool base layer tops and bottoms as well as replenishing our supply of Darn Tough socks. The base layer shirt I picked up is from Smartwool, while the bottoms are from a New Hampshire company, 33 Below. I hope to add some reviews after I get some wear out of them. No doubt that I will be using them right away with temperatures in the 30s and 40s lately.
After shopping, we picked up some great pizza at When Pigs Fly Bakery which never disappoints. We took the pizzas back to our hotel, bathed ourselves in our new wool and settled down for a quiet evening.
In the morning, I completed a C25K run through parts of West Kennebunk. Not too much to see, but it was a beautiful fall morning that made for great running.
Our trip ended with a fun stop at Boulangerie Bakery in Kennebunk Village. It was a bit of an adventure finding it, but it was well worth it. For a brief review, it was great! (Feeling a bit lazy today).
See you on the road!
