Today I Fell in Love

Yes, today I fell in love.  But no worries for my husband. I fell in love with a  place - Popham Beach - I had never been to this beach before before but man I do want to go back. All you Mainers are probably familiar with this beach but it was a real find for me.  It is a beautiful beach, that was not crowded and very peaceful.  You could see for miles, sun, blue ocean, sand, waves and evergreens! I loved it.

I didn't go in the water. Maine ocean is always cold and the fact that I was farther north than usual didn't entice me to try it.  But I loved sitting in my beach chair, smelling the ocean, listening to the waves and reading my book which happened to be a literal beach read (The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe).  Perfection!  I could have sat there forever.  The pictures don't do it justice. It was wonderful, believe me.

So peaceful and scenic.
I can see how it has the ability to soothe and calm someone.

Enjoy your Maine vacation! I had so much fun when I visited to run the Maine marathon there in '11.

I would love to spend time there running and reading or just sitting on the sand doing absolutely nothing.

I'm such a wimp when it comes to cold water, but I went in when we were in Wells last weekend and it was nice!!

What a great way to chill out and unwind. It sounds so nice - probably because it's Winter here and I'm working.

It sure is a beautiful beach. I can see why you want to go back.

I'm honored that you used a quote of me in your header. Thank you.
