Is it possible to take too many beach pictures? Yes. Probably. I took so many , oh I took so many. Last Sunday we played hooky from church, for a very valid reason; we were all insanely congested by crazy allergies and didn’t figure the congregants would appreciate being sneezed on by the Murray family, so we decided that Vitamin D and Salt Air were both in order. (Always wonderful medicine!) For locals, who might (or might not know), Ocean Park is a great place to go; half a mile from Old Orchard without the Old Orchardness. And free parking! It’s quaint and wonderful and you can play shuffleboard for a dollar. 🙂
While Ryan really took to swimming in pools this summer, Jack wasn’t such a fan. Seeing as though we hadn’t been to a sand beach yet this summer (for the purpose of just kicking back, relaxing, and swimming) I wasn’t sure how he’d take to the ocean, but both boys were beyond delighted. Attacking the waves, getting braver and going deeper. This born and raised, flat-lander momma is raising water babies. I love it!
Yesterday, Erick took the boys up North to see Grammie, and I hit up Route One with mom and dad. I took a few different pictures of Camden Harbor; we found Bay Road, which was new to us, so I snapped some pictures from a different viewpoint. Pretty any way you look at it! We were there when the boats had been tucked in for the evening.
We plan on taking 2 or 3 more ocean trips before Erick heads back to school; luckily I’m homeschooling the boys, so I think a few beachcombing field trips will be in order after that. 🙂 Ah! Life in Maine!
