Day Trip Cape Porpoise

Palace Diner Biddeford Maine
Palace Diner Biddeford (yes, they were inviting to the ladies!)

We started our day trip at the Palace Diner in Biddeford. Quite possibly the smallest diner we've ever been to! Their menu is not standard diner fare but diner fare with a twist. PBLT, anyone? That's a Pork Belly Lettuce and Tomato sandwich!

After the Palace we headed to Biddeford Pool to see if the snowy owl was still hanging around. It was a bit too windy and rainy to spend too much time there but we did see where the Audubon Trail parking is and it looks like an easy hike in better weather.

We took a lot of little side roads that I think would be hard to get around in the summer. But it would be a pretty fall drive!

After Biddeford Pool we headed to Fortunes Rocks Beach. Still windy and cold but we hopped out to take some photos.

Brrr! It may be Paradise but it's dang cold!
Continuing our coasterly trek we next came to Goose Rocks Beach which was an interesting warren of small streets with No Parking signs everywhere. I guess you have to live there.

Back out to Rt 9 we drove south to Cape Porpoise. Just had to see a place with that name!

Up next is the Kennebunks. Both my grandson and my daughter have since told me the best lobster roll ever is at The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport on the bridge. Sounds like a challenge to me...

Getting ready to head home we stopped at the Kennebunk Beach. There were a few hardy souls out surfing and stand up paddle boarding. And, of course, the ubiquitous herring gull stopped right by the car waiting for us to throw some food out. Don't do that.

Going down...

Just feed me already!
Other places to go that we missed that day are Walker Point where the Bush compound is and walking around in Kennebunkport or antiquing in Arundel.
