Kennebunkport is a fashionable, quaint and charming town, nestled along the rocky coast just south of Portland. The coastal town is home of the Rachel Carson national Wildlife Preserve, and is known for its long sandy beaches, rocky coastline, and for its history (dating back to 1653). After experiencing the beaches, and the local wildlife, it’s customary for visitors to stroll the small town shops and boutiques, and then to stop at one of Kennebunkport’s many fine restaurants.
During the summer, the goto in foot fashion is either a type of sandal or a flipflop, but in both cases, you’re often giving up support in favor of a cooler, lighter feel. And while when I’m home from my travels I’m a notorious flipflop-wearer, I have began venturing out and am here to tell you that you don’t have to give up support and foot security during the hotter months. The worst part about wearing open-toed anything is that what if it rains? Or what if you want to go off the beaten path, even for two seconds? Well, there are options…
A new treatment option is available for a myriad of ailments that was once thought to be a harmful and addictive drug, but with the advent of the internet the truth has come out, and it’s becoming more well-known that aspects of cannabis or marijuana are indeed healing* and therapeutic. With cannabis, the thing to understand is that there’s the male and female plants, each with their own compounds and effects. The female plant is the most demonized, because it’s flowers contain THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid that ‘gets you high,’ but in the stalks and leaves of both the male plant, also known as hemp, and the leaves, there is a compound named CBD, and that’s the chemical that has people in the medical industry excited.
During my honeymoon in Maine, Leah and I were blessed with the opportunity to experience some of Maine’s premier cuisine at the Hurricane Restaurant in Kennebunkport, Maine. Kennebunkport is a fashionable, quaint and charming town, nestled along the rocky coast just south of Portland. The coastal town is home of the Rachel Carson national Wildlife Preserve, and is known for its long sandy beaches, rocky coastline, and for its history (dating back to 1653).
After experiencing the beaches, and the local wildlife, it’s customary for visitors to stroll the small town shops and boutiques, and then to stop at one of Kennebunkport’s many fine restaurants. Our stop was at the local favorite Hurricane Restaurant, which is located right along the main square of Kennebunkport, the Dock Square. Upon walking in, you’re greeted with a wall of fabulous wines, a small bar, and then as you venture to a table, views of the Kennebunk river come into view through every window. Leah and I found the whole scene to be a magical, and romantic spot.
Hurricane Restaurant offers fresh local seafood, locally grown produce and fine prime meats daily. In-house, Luanne MacDonald has employed a personal chef and pastry chef who customizes the menu each day with the finest and freshest product, and that came through in the rich flavors and in the quality of their seafood; but more on that later. Hurricane prides itself on top quality food as well as a diverse wine list that features over 130 selections by bottle and 60 by glass; which has won them Wine Spectator awards for over 15 years in a row.

The desire to achieve a manly beard is something most men run into at some point in their lives. For me, I was in my late twenties when I realized I wanted one but couldn’t. But with time, product, and a new regimen, I’ve noticed a major upsurge in thickness and health of my beard. For ages, I struggled with patchy growth and dryness that plagued me daily, and made it thoroughly unenjoyable to try and move through the bad stages of beard growing to where it looks and feels okay. But as the title suggests, proper beard regimen can go a long way.
