Sunshine, chocolate, rocks and lobster

It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know of wonder and humility. –Rachel Carson

Waves and sailboats

On Saturday, we went to Ogunquit, Maine. It was only a few hours from Boston, but felt a world away.

Rock tower

There were lots of these little stacks of rocks on the…well, rocks. So we made one too! It reminded us of the rock stacks at Walden. Not sure if there’s a connection or people just enjoy stacking rocks.

We had coffee and chocolates by the sea and watched the sailboats:

We duly avoided parking in the lobstermen parking area/throwing stones in the harbor:

Graham asked a passing man in a very Wisconsin-y sweatshirt to take our picture. (Me: You asked that man to take our picture because we was wearing a sweatshirt with deer on it, didn’t you? Graham: Yes.)

(Please excuse the crazy hair.)

We watched the waves crash:

Made some smoochy faces as the sun started setting:

And finished the night off with delicious lobster rolls at Barnacle Billy’s. There were TWO roaring fires at the restaurant, and we could watch the sailboats come into the harbor to dock.

A lovely day. And now I can add Maine to my list of states visited.

Oh, how could I forget! Ogunquit also has the distinction of having the nicest garbage cans I’ve ever seen; they are each labeled with a virtue of some kind. I collected pictures of Faith, Faithfulness, Confidence, Invention, Persistence, and Tolerance. The locals probably thought I was the craziest tourist ever, running across traffic to get pictures of garbage cans.
