Visiting Kennebunkport in Autumn

One of my simple road trip pleasures, is to take a stroll to help bring me back into the moment and clear my senses.  On this particular night, I ended my work day in Kennebunkport, Maine. 

As I stepped out of my car, I was caught off guard by the unexpected Autumn chill in the air due to the setting sun. It was then I wished I had packed gloves and a warmer coat for my walk.  That wish and chilled feeling soon faded once I became embraced by the smell of salty air and an amazing blaze of color in the sky.   This is fall in New England.
