Every year my mom and I say we are going to make a summer day trip somewhere “different” but never do. Work weeks are hectic and the weekends are filled with competing priorities. But we finally made the decision to just do it and head to Ogunquit, Maine. Let me tell you, I am so glad we did! The day was the perfect Ogunquit summer Friday!
High Tide & cramped Beachgoers
We left early in the morning and the drive took less than 2 hours. Our first stop was the beach and as you can tell from previous posts, it’s one of my happy places. But the tide was coming in so we only stayed for a few minutes because it was so high there was barely any room to move! Beachgoers were literally on top of each other! Instead, my mom and I decided to take a walk to Perkins Cove and reminisce about the vacations we used to take to Ogunquit years ago as a family. We walked past the hotels we stayed in and chatted about “Dolly The Trolley” that travels around town.
