Boothbay Harbor, Maine

We were so lucky to receive an invitation from our friends to come up to their cabin in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. We had a wonderful time exploring the coast of Maine and a beautiful botanical garden. The weather was perfect and so many memories were made. Here are just a few shots from our three days in Boothbay!!

The kids at the botanical garden. This was the most amazing garden!! It is so large that we only were able to see a small portion. We will have to come up and visit again.

Henry building his fairy house. Please note that it has two little architect!

Emma and Claudia in the "Story Barn". This barn is filled with the best children's books that kids are allowed to read. It is just so peaceful and the lighting was amazing.

We went to a beach one night to explore. The kids found some sea glass and heart shaped rocks. The night before we went to another beach around 10:00 pm and were able to experience bioluminescence. We all rubbed our hands in the sand and it sparkled like it was filled with pixie dust. The kids were in AWE. Henry said that it looked like pieces from the stars in the sky were in the sand. I saw the most amazing shooting star with the longest tail! A magical night to say the least!

On our last morning we went out on their boat to Damariscove Island. It was beautiful! The salty, sweet smelling air was to die for. The kids had a blast exploring the island walking through tiny paths. We also found a beach that was covered in sea glass and pottery. The kids felt like they had hit the jackpot!!!
