Our English Goldendoodle, Bailey, writes again:
“2011 ended with a bang. I had my first great adventure. Liz and Eric took me to New York City for Christmas, and showed me where they lived and worked before they became innkeepers in Maine. Wow! Life in the city is so different from life here at our Kennebunk/Kennebunkport Maine Bed and Breakfast. There were so many new smells in the city, so many sounds, and so many people! Each day was exhaustingly full.
One of the highlights of the journey for me was our trip to Rockefeller Center; the Christmas tree there was so beautiful, and so very, very, big. It was fun to watch all the people. Boy, did I want to get my paws on the ice skating rink! Too bad I wasn’t allowed on it.
We saw lots of family, and I have to say, I was the toast of the town. Everyone loved me (and the fact that I don’t shed), and I loved everyone. I hope they can all visit me here in Maine, and that I can visit them again next year.
Our trip to New York City was fun, but honestly, it was a little overwhelming. I was happy to return home to our Kennebunk/Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, where the air smells of the ocean, and where I have room to run and play.
Liz and Eric got right to work after their vacation, for the week between Christmas and New Year’s was busy here at the inn. We hosted a dinner for a lovely bride and her bridesmaids one night, which was great fun. On New Year’s Eve, we served our guests hors d’oeuvres and champagne before they all headed out for dinner at different restaurants in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Breakfast Sunday morning was served later than usual, so everyone could sleep in. Well, almost everyone. I wake up early every day, and the first thing I do is wake Eric so he can take me out, feed me, and play with me! We’re best buddies, Eric and I.
2011 was Liz and Eric’s first full year as innkeepers in Maine, and they were tired but happy as the year drew to a close. They say the best part of the innkeeping is that they meet so many wonderful people. That’s my favorite part, too.
We hope to see you at our Maine Bed and Breakfast in 2012. Happy New Year!”
