Sebasco Resort, Phippsburg, Maine

.

Consisting of 450 oceanfront acres , there are ample opportunities for strolling.

.

.

The resort itself spreads out in various areas with various types of buildings… and gives you a feeling of stepping back in time.

.

.

Individual cottages straight out the 1950’s are across the road from modern condos.

.

.

And everywhere you look there’s something photo worthy.

.

.

The rugged Maine coast is on full display. No wide sandy beaches in this neck of the woods.

.

.

The resort has their own cruise boat and offers scenic tours of the area.

.

.

And naturally my husband had to strike up an hour long conversation with the boat’s captain.

.

.

Ever spent the night in a lighthouse inspired suite? You can here.

.

.

And it’s right across from a moonlit dancing lobster. What more could you want?

.

.

Low tide.

.

.

Another cottage.

.

.

The cove.

.

.

Ahhh…. Maine.

It never fails to lower my blood pressure.

.

Anne Taintor gets me.

 

Yes… she’s a Maine born, Harvard educated artist.

And yes… she addresses domestic stereotypes with humor and advertisements from a bygone era.

But ya know what?

This woman gets me.

Shoes!

Her annual engagement calendar always has a prominent place on my desk and it never fails to make me smile.

Oh, those perfect 1950’s housewives…. you know the ones –  perfectly coiffed, wearing high heels and pearls to wash dishes? The ones who got a little too excited over that new Hoover the husband bought them for their anniversary?

I like to imagine they were thinking this way.

I know I would have.

And if my hubby gave me a Hoover on our anniversary?

Yes, Anne.

You get me.
