We started our adventure in Newport, Rhode Island visiting Mom and Tim’s lovingly restored home in Middletown.
Casual but excellent Italian dinner at Pasta Beach
A trip or two down Bellevue Avenue to tour the mansions or do some flips on the lawn of the Breakers! Stunning!
Sundries and produce from Sweet Berry Farm in Middletown is a must!
Of course a stay would not be complete without visits to some of the most iconic Relais & Chateau properties in the town.
This is a fabulous little town to visit on route from Newport to Camden. Highlights include dinner at the Michelin Star restaurant at the The White Barn Inn and a run or cycle out to Walker Point to see the Bush Compound. Of course, the whole lobster at The Clam Shack was not a bad start!
The most fabulous town I have found in Maine is historic and charming Camden and we had a wonderful stay at the Camden Harbour Inn. Though we did not have time for a special dinner at Natalie’s, I can tell the breakfast and bar definitely did not disappoint!
Camden is all about sailing and that we did!
Aboard this charming sloop, The Owl
Wonderfully charming and historic Camden:
And the best part of it all was a gracious 70th birthday party for my Aunt Annie at their lovely cliff top home with miles of coast line and that famous Maine fog!
Hard to leave this place but at least a fabulous farewell of lobster eggs benedict at Natalie’s:
