Discovering a hidden gem.

.

I love randomly exploring an area we’ve visited often and stumbling on a new place. Last week it was the Boathouse Hotel and Marina in Kennebunkport.

The perfect location for a leisurely spring afternoon lunch.

And in true River style I worked my way down the cocktail menu.

.

The Watermelon Sugar to start….

.

A Walk of Shame with appetizers. Crab cakes for me, lemongrass ginger mussels for the husband.

.

.

White Lemonade Sangria with a chicken Caesar salad for me, sherry baked haddock for my other half. It was a wonderful meal in a pleasant spot made even better by the friendly couple we met at the bar.

They were visiting from Wisconsin for a college graduation so we happily gave them some local destination suggestions. Turns out they run a pub of their own in Wisconsin with the same town name as one in Maine.

The Presque Isle Pub. If you’re ever in the area, stop by and tell them the boozy couple from Maine say hello.
