A Special Day!! – Saturday – June 22, 2013
Today is A Special Day for two reasons...
First of all, today is my birthday.
Yes, I was born 64 years ago today!
That means until November,
I will be as old as Bill;o((
But more importantly,
Since it's MY birthday, I thought it would be fun to ride the trolley
from our campsite near Wells Harbor to Ogunquit.
In Ogunquite, we can walk Marginal Way,
a beautiful seaside walk along the Maine Coast!!
Of course, we waited and waited and waited!!!
We passed the time watching traffic which was already bumper to bumper.
The police use bikes which is much faster than the traffic;o))
While we waited,
I enjoyed the pretty petunias all around us.
Finally the trolley arrived and we were the only passengers!!
Since it was the first day,
the gentlemen standing was training the driver.
The trolley pulled out and got in line with everyone else.
Using the trolley is not faster, but it is more relaxing and much cheaper… just $1.00!!
We can sit back, see the sights and avoid the $15-$20 parking fees in Oconquit:o))
Since it is my birthday,
be prepared to see an abundance of one of my favorite things...
We got off the trolley in the shopping district of Ogunquit
window shopped our way to the Marginal Way Walkway entrance.
Marginal Way is a paved, public shoreline footpath. It spans a little more than a mile along a spectacular coast and connects Ogunquit Beach to Perkins Cove. As you walk along, there are panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, the spectacular rocky coast of Maine and beautiful landscaped grounds of the old-fashioned oceanfront hotels. The land was donated to the Town of Ogunquit in 1925 and remains a beautiful place to enjoy a SPECIAL walk!!
Of course… there were BEAUTIFUL flowers!!!
Bill is taking in the view.
The Spectacular Rocky Coast of Maine!!!
As we were looking out over the rocky coastline,
It’s cries alerted people and a crowd gathered.
When it finally got on dry land,
there were so many people around it had no where to go;o((
We decided we should move on so the fawn could make its way to a safer place.
More beautiful views as we neared Perkins Cove.
We watched the father and son team bring in their catch.
The father told us there are about 100 lobsters in each cage and they threw back 4 times that many lobster because they were too small or too large. Apparently, it is a very hefty fine if you keep illegal size lobsters. Fines can total as much at $10,000 so they are serious about following the rules!!
Lobstah' Roll and Cole Slaw :o)))
Yep, it was as good as it looks!!!
It was a PERFECT Birthday :o))
