Ah, the Sea

With the recent full moon in Pisces (sign of the fishes, for those out of the know) and the last long weekend of the summer, it was the perfect time to go Maine for a last hurrah and maybe a lobster or two.

The Marginal Way in Ogunquit.

This is one of my favorite places to walk in Ogunquit. It runs for about a sinuous mile along the coast and features beautiful, soul-retrieving views. And, with good eats on either end (downtown Ogunquit and Perkins Cove), the walk becomes a gastronomic excuse.

[Now that the summer is over!] My
quest for a local fish market has been achieved. Capt'n Hook's has a fish
market, fried seafood and an outdoor
lobster bake.

Lobster prices have been really low, so we've been gorging ourselves, shamelessly.

But then there is the Wells Estuary at Laudholm Farm, where you can walk it off.

This was the view today. Notice the almost total lack of humanity. Did I also mention it only costs three bucks to park? Yeah.

I found this weird, pink snail shell with pink seaweed growing out of it. It looked like the snail meant to do that.

Right now I'm wondering, "Why don't I live here . . . ?"
