Happy Friday – time to paint the town RED! Oh – and go Pats!

February 1, 2019

Happy Friday, all! Below is a list of our scheduled activities for this coming week as well as some suggested activities in town and the surrounding area. As many of you know, this is certainly the quietest time of the year – which is a blessing for some, and one of the reasons why a lot of people come to visit – for peace, relaxation and having the beach totally to themselves! For those who are up for a little more fun and excitement you’ve picked a good time to come as well (we sure do have the best of both worlds here in Southern Maine)! Not only are the Patriots playing in this Sundays Superbowl (yes, we’re “wicked” excited – Maine is part of “New England” after all :D) but it’s also Kennebunk’s “Paint the Town Red” month. If you take a short drive north the town is decorated very ornately for Valentine’s Day – think red lights, giant hearts, great photo ops! There are also parties, red-plate specials at restaurants and fun events for couples all month long – think paint nights, cooking and mixology classes and much more. Visit gokennebunks.com for the list of all activities! If you are looking for a fun place to watch the Superbowl the front desk will have a list of some good places to enjoy at. Go Pats!

Beach Therapy

January 16, 2018

“If the ocean can calm itself so can you. We are both salt water mixed with air.”

This quote is so meaningful on a few different levels for me. Like most of us, I have days where I just need a break. A break from the, at times, mundane routines of life. A break from too many thoughts racing through my head, a break from the “what ifs” or thoughts of what needs to be accomplished but are no where near completion.

The beach is the BEST place to have this break. I feel beyond lucky to not only live, but work so close to my therapist: the ocean. InnSeason’s Falls at Ogunquit is a hop, skip and jump from not just one but three popular beaches that offer so many ways to unwind the mind. Even in the biting cold, the beach is a great place to escape.

Footbridge Beach is the closest beach to “The Falls”. You can walk out of your suite and have your feet in the sand in under ten minutes. Of course, with the ground being icy this time of year we suggest you take your time! Footbridge is a favorite for many for it’s simplicity. A narrow footbridge guides your way over the dunes to one of the most picturesque beaches around, with no businesses and hardly any homes to cloud your view, this beach really is secluded and peaceful. A great escape!

Ogunquit Beach, often called Main Beach, is the most popular by far. It is a bustling place in the summer, close to shops and restaurants but you can still catch plenty of people walking it’s white sand beaches into the winter, especially at sunset when the sky becomes painted in pinks and tangerines. This time of day is perfect to hop out of your car, take a few deep breaths and enjoy nature’s artwork. This beach is a mile south of the resort, very accessible, especially this time of year with ample parking. Convenient relaxation!

Finally, Wells offers several amazing beaches. Driving down Mile Road brings you to several of them. At the end of Mile Road you have a convenient parking lot that I associate with folks enjoying their lunch with a convenient and spectacular view. Seriously, it’s a great spot to have lunch in your car and I guarantee if you go you’ll see the majority of it’s visitors snacking on McDonalds French fries or a Subway grinder. If you decide to venture out of your car, like I did today, you have miles of packed sand beaches to walk. This is where I had my therapy session for today! I came across so many interesting patterns and treasures on the beach that it became a bit of an impromptu photoshoot. My favorite was an area littered with decaying lobster traps, filled with muscles and clams and seaweed. A perfect spot to recharge.

Just a half hour or so of being outside in the sun, making footprints in the sand was enough for me to feel a little more at peace, a little more centered and a LOT more grateful. Beach therapy may not solve all of life’s troubles but it certainly doesn’t hurt!

Lighthouses, lobsters and laughs all in one tour!? Oh my!

October 25, 2017

Tomorrow will be my fourth time taking guests around the coast of Maine on our weekly Lighthouse Tour. I think it’s finally safe to say: it’s a hit! As the Activities Director at the Falls I feel privileged to be able to bring our guests to these wonderful locations along the seacoast.

What I enjoy most about the Lighthouse Tour is seeing just how different the architecture of each one is. From elegant columns reminiscent of ancient Greek architecture, grand Gothic Revival to common brick and weather beaten lighthouses can all be viewed on this tour. I also enjoy the details I’ve missed that guests notice, or the questions they ask that I don’t have answers to, because it forces me to do my research! I now know way more about the four lighthouses we visit than I ever imagined I would.

In case you were curious we start in South Portland to visit the cutest of the lighthouses, Breakwater “Bug” Light. And yes, a lighthouse can in fact be described as “cute”. It stands before the Portland skyline. After we visit the most photographed lighthouse in the world, Portland Head Light. This is the longest visit as Fort Williams has a beautiful cliff walk the guests are encouraged to walk along with several bunkers and forts. We make a short stop at Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse (more commonly referred to as “Two Lights”) before venturing south again for lunch at the Lobster Cove Restaurant in York with gorgeous views of Long Sands Beach and our fourth lighthouse, Nubble, in the distance. We end our tour driving to the Nubble Lighthouse which, if you want my opinion, is the most quintessential and picturesque lighthouse.

The tour has a lot of what people expect when they come to visit the southern coast of Maine: lighthouses, lobster and hopefully a few laughs along the way. Hopefully you’ll check it out on your next visit to InnSeason’s Falls at Ogunquit.

Change is in the air…

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post – today is my last day with ‘The Falls at Ogunquit’.  I can honestly say that this has been the best place of employment that I’ve ever worked at!  From management to co-workers to guests, everyone is kind, caring and genuine.  This Resort runs so well due to everyone working together – it has never been a ‘that’s not my job’ type of environment.  Our guests see this comradery and feel its’ effects.  I can’t say enough good things about this place!  So, this begs the question “why are you leaving?” Well…even though I’m a New England girl, born and raised, I spent enough time in Florida to miss it.  I happen to like heat and humidity, snow and cold not so much.   Lucky for me, I can still do what I love, and that’s spending time with people!  I’ll continue with activities in the hospitality field and try my best to give vacationers a unique and memorable experience.  After this news, I should also tell you that you don’t have to worry – there will still be activities at The Falls!  Megan is the newest Activities Director, please come by to meet her and have some fun.  I promise you will!

Thanks for the memories, Ogunquit, I will be back to visit!  Sue
