Bridget’s Picks

Bridget M. Burns joined Down East last fall after freelancing for the magazine for five years. She lives with her husband and two young daughters in a renovated barn in Kennebunkport, where her favorite fall activity is hitting the near-empty beach after the tourists have returned home. She loves reading, cooking, tending to her vegetable garden, and introducing her girls to all different parts of Maine.
