Thursday we visited two forts and a wonderful beach. Want to see?
First stop, the small Fort Edgecomb with it’s octagonal turret built in 1808.
It’s a small park now, along a bit of waterway that is filled with lobster buoys.
Then we headed out to Fort Popham, built in 1862 right on a most glorious beach! This fort is mostly intact and was a lot of fun to wander.
But of course I was most attracted to the beach…miles and miles of beautiful sand…
…with smaller pools of water for children to play in.
The water in the Atlantic was cold. It is Maine after all. But it was so much fun to play in the waves for a little bit.
Once you got in and remembered how to breath you could be a kid again! And really, it’s OK not to be able to feel your legs, it’s all part of summer at the beach in New England!
We ended the day at a waterfront tavern having dinner with friends.
Can’t get any better than that.
