Anniversary Weekend

Saturday was our 11th wedding anniversary and we headed up to Kittery, ME to celebrate. That might seem like a strange place to go but, you see, we spent our wedding night in Kittery and we’ve always meant to go back. The same bed & breakfast, Enchanted Nights, is in operation and with our anniversary falling on a weekend it just seemed like the timing was right for a return trip. Not surprisingly, we had a fabulous time.

We hit Portsmouth for lunch and were surprised to find a huge street festival in full swing. There were vendors and sidewalk sales and bands. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours. We had a delicious lunch at the Portsmouth Brewery and then headed to Kittery.


The B&B was just as beautiful as we remembered but we definitely upgraded our room this time. Whirlpool for 2, king sized bed, walk in shower for 2 and all the Victorian frou-frous you can imagine!


After we had enjoyed the whirlpool and, errr, relaxed for a bit we headed out for a walk to explore the area. I brought the camera along and took some shots.

Of pretty flowers.

And the public library.


We stopped on a drawbridge and spotted Warren’s Lobster House. Beer, mussels and lobster stew sure did hit the spot there. And on our walk back we stopped and got a pizza to bring back to the room.

We spent the rest of the evening enjoying the room, watching the DVD of our wedding/honeymoon, and just being happy together. We both agreed it was the best anniversary yet!

  1. A belated happy one to you both! For all the time I’ve spent in Maine I’ve never been to Kittery (except through it on the turnpike). This may bear investigating.

  2. Happy anniversary! What a super celebration. Our honeymoon was a fishing trip, camping out – lots of fun then, but I’m not sure we’d want to try to replicate it now …

  3. Happy Anniversary!!!

    The Inn is beautiful. I love their local public library, looks so inviting.

    We’re headed to Maine to celebrate our anniversary at the end of the week 🙂 8 years.

  4. Victorians had whirlpools? lol
    LOVE the room, and oh yeah, nothing better than good seafood – what a great escape for your anniversary!
    Glad it was a happy one!

  5. You were almost within walking distance of us. Actually, you could walk it, but it’s a couple miles.

  6. Happy Anniversary! Sounds like a lovely trip. I can’t wait until we go to Maine in Aug. I love Maine (in the summer anyway ;)).

  7. Happy 11th anniversary to a special couple! Thanks for posting the lovely pictures and memories of your special time together and best wishes for many, many more happy anniversaries.

  8. Being happy together is the best way to celebrate an anniversary. Fabulous room. Very romantic. Congratulations on 11 years of marriage!

  9. That looks like the perfect way to celebrate an anniversary. Such a beautiful room and it sounds like there was delicious food and drink as well. I’m so glad you had such a great weekend. Congratulations on your 11 years together.

  10. Happy Anniversary! If it weren’t your anniversary, I’d be asking why you were so close to me and didn’t visit 😉

    I didn’t even realize that it was Market Square Day (not that it matters, way too many people for me)!

    I’m glad you had a nice Anniversary weekend.

  11. Happy belated anniversary! Warren’s has a good salad bar, that’s my favorite thing there. And what a nice place to stay! I’ve never heard of that place before!

  12. Oh, I am always glad of a chance to visit Kittery. I have one of the best lobster rolls of my life there. 😉 The B&B looks heavenly, too. Congrats on your momentous anniversary, and I’m so glad you got to celebrate it in style. 🙂
