Why wait for Thanksgiving to be thankful?

November 16, 2017 by

Thanksgiving is humorously sandwiched between two of the most stress-inducing situations, the busiest travel day of the year and (dun, dun, dun…) Black Friday. Due to this irony, it is easy to take this special time for granted and have it be over with before you know it.

Since we are one week away from the kick off of the ‘holiday season’ there is no time like the present to take a moment to think of what it is you are thankful for. Thanksgiving really is a special time to be thankful for families, amazing friends, or a helpful community but you don’t need to wait another seven days to celebrate them. Try taking the next week to show your thanks and appreciation in which ever way you choose. You can donate to a local animal shelter, drop off can goods at a church food pantry, do little things to show your partner, parents or even strangers they are appreciated or simply stop and take a moment to reflect on all the good of the past year.

Now, not everyone relies on this holiday to be reminded to be thankful, but it certainly highlights it, hopefully putting all the good in your life in prospective. Since Turkey Day and the days surrounding can sometimes be stressful why not show your gratitude now?

Below is a list of local food donation sites along the seacoast as well as a how-to on being thankful which has some good ideas:

The seacoast of Maine: not all salt air and lobster!

November 7, 2017 by

When you think of vacationing in the southern coast of Maine you probably have visions of long walks along sandy beaches, exquisite shopping and of course, all things lobster! These visions are accurate. We have everything in Ogunquit and our neighboring towns to satisfy the beach bum, shopaholic and seafood connoisseur inside us all. But what we also have is an abundance of nature preserves and hiking trails that make you forget you chose to vacation in one of the prettiest coastlines in the country.

One of the coolest things about my job has been learning about several nature reserves full of trails and wildlife to explore all within a short drive of the InnSeason Resort. One of them being the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge in Wells. It is a hidden gem that leaves its visitors in awe every time we visit. A well groomed, one mile trail inside the forest and along the marshes, the Rachel Carson Trail offers spectacular views of the meandering salt water Branch Brook and Merriland River, vistas of the Atlantic and dynamic Hemlock forest. The scenery changes each week and our guests have enjoyed watching the colorful foliage peep, peak and now fall over the last few weeks.

Even further removed from the “beach life” this area is so well known and respected for is beautiful Mt. Agamenticus. Again, a short drive from our resort “Mt. A” as it is more commonly, and easily, remembered is a guest favorite for those who partake. Mt. A offers over 40 miles of trails, mainly easy to moderate, as well as an access road to the top in case you opt for ease! On a clear day you can see the White Mountains of New Hampshire including Mt. Washington (the largest mountain in the northeast and home to the “world’s worst recorded weather” as well as our glimmering Atlantic ocean and our sandy beaches. You can make out famed Nubble Lighthouse in York as well as Kennebunkport from the top. It is a glorious juxtaposition: mountains vs ocean!

These are just two examples of some not-so-beachy activities that are open for exploration in our lovely, little “beach” area. Make sure you put these activities on your to-do list next time you visit.

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

October 25, 2017 by

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.

Summer 2.0?!

September 26, 2017 by

Summer is hanging on a little longer around New England this year and you’ll find no complaints here! This past week, with temperatures hitting 80 degrees or higher, has been a treat that I’m taking advantage of every chance I get! It feels as if I’ve spent more time at the beach this past week than all summer long.

This is a perfect time to pack up and travel to Ogunquit to enjoy a day at the beach or a weekend away. The busy tourist season is slowly dwindling but shops and restaurants are still open and waiting for you to visit. The ocean water is actually warmer now than it is in mid-August. At least it feels that way to me… I may have a touch of summer ending denial!

There truly is something magical in the air this time of year. You know a change is coming, you’re excited about it, but you still get to enjoy all the benefits of a warm summer day. Hopefully I’m not the only one taking advantage of this little bit of extra summer we’ve been blessed with. Judging by the folks opting to eat their lunches outside at the local cafés, the surfers dotting the ocean horizon and those out walking to their destinations instead of driving it looks like I’m not alone.

Enjoy it while you can folks! Even if just for a moment. The snow will be falling before you can put away your bathing suits and sundresses!

One final week of summer 2017…

September 14, 2017 by

Are we really approaching the final week of Summer 2017?! With the sun shining and temperatures hitting over 80 degrees all week long it’s hard to believe “fall” is just around the proverbial corner!

With any change (a new job, a move, or a new season) it is often a time for reflection of the past and excited preparation for the future (I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t thought of costume ideas for Halloween already)! As this summer slowly ends I hope yours was filled with positive memories: trying new and exciting activities or revisiting your tried and true favorites. The Ogunquit area is filled with so many wonderful ways to enjoy both seasons from the obvious such as Marginal Way and our beautiful powder sand beaches to the hidden gems such as the Rachel Carson Preserve. Hopefully you were able to take advantage of all the wonderful activities this tiny town has readily available to you.

And if you haven’t lived Summer 2017 to the fullest, don’t fret, you still have seven days left!
