Yesterday I drove to Burlington, Ma and met my college roommate for lunch and a little shopping. I wanted to go to an Athleta. I could have bought one of everything but only bought two things. I feel like their prices have increased to rival LuLuLemons. Oh well, it is nice stuff. When we came out of the mall it was already snowing and a storm was predicted so I headed north. I got off the interstate in Hampton Beach and drove up 1A. Love, love, love driving along the coast.
I got out of my car along the main strip to at least get one picture. I am finding it hard to get some photos as with all the snow it is hard to get close!
When I got to York I drove to the lighthouse before checking in. It was dark and windy and cold and really kind of scary listening to the foghorn up there! I didn't hang around too long as I was imagining my car being swept into the ocean and no AJH being around any more.
The tree is a Valentine Tree near the lighthouse. There is a lobster on top and as Char says it just screams romance. The snow is on our third floor hotel deck (from the roof).
This morning I got up and headed out for a run in spite of the howling wind. It was my second great run this week. It wasn't so cold I couldn't stand it, not with the sound of the ocean in my ears and the beautiful blue sky and bright sun. Loved it, loved it, loved it!
I love the look of the beach with snow on it. There was lots of ice on the beach but I had on my Yak Trax so no problem!
Getting down to the beach - twice - was a bit hazardous. I clung to the railing remembering my fall from a few years ago when I really hurt my ribs. Then I got on my butt to go across the rocks like the old lady I am remembering my sprained ankle from last year. But it was worth it to run on the packed sand next to the water.
I ran by Nubble Light and it was much less scary today. Then I went back down to the beach before finishing my run.
I've had two amazing meals today. I could just post previous pictures from visits to the Maine Diner as I always get the same thing. All days in Maine should include lobster in some form.
Yep, Maine.....The Way Life Should Be.
