Maine trip

We weren't there long and it rained hard when we arrived, but we had one absolutely gorgeus day.  It was great to see Christine and Molly (her dog) in their summer digs.
We sat along the sea wall at high tide.  As is typical for Maine, when the ocean recedes, there are rocks in this spot.  The beach is to the left in a small cove.   At York, people were surfing at high tide which was fun to watch, not that it's anything like California or Hawaii.

We also visited the lovely Wells Public Library and Arrington's Book Shop, and walked the mile-long Rachel Carson Trail along the salt marsh with views of the ocean.  Gorgeous!  Christine took us up to Kennebunkport (where the Bushes summer), down to York, and everywhere in between.  She's a great tour guide.
A picture post card day ended with a trip to Nubble Light.   Our dinner of fried seafood, fries, and cole slaw was just right.
