Scenic Spots in Kennebunk

March 9th, 2012 by englishmeadows

Now that Bailey is a member of the family, we spend more and more of our free time exploring our surroundings on foot. Daily walks lead us to secluded beaches, wooded trails, and down quiet lanes in historic Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. For Bailey, each walk is a joyous occasion; there are always interesting scents and sounds, and of course friends to greet. It’s been great fun to see our community through the eyes of a dog.

One of our favorite spots to walk is Parson’s Beach*, which is only a few miles from our Kennebunk/Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast. Bailey is particularly fond of it, because he loves to dig and play tag with the surf. Here he is, inviting us to romp with him.

Another one of Bailey’s favorite spots is the Rachel Carson Trail, in the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. It, too, is just a few miles from our Kennebunk Bed and Breakfast; in fact, it’s close to Parson’s Beach. The flat trail meanders through woods and over wooden bridges through a salt marsh. It is a lovely, peaceful spot.

Both Parson’s Beach and the Rachel Carlson Trail are within biking distance of the Inn at English Meadows. This is good news, since there is limited parking at Parson’s Beach.
