It’s been a very mild winter in Maine this year and it’s a lot of fun to head to Old Orchard Beach on these nice days. It doesn’t even need to be sunny, it’s still warm enough to be completely tolerable. It’s absolutely lovely to walk around enjoying ourselves without the huge crowds of Old Orchard Beach in the summertime… of course nothing is open, not even a bathroom, but we love it just the same!
If you have a chance to visit any part of Maine in the wintertime do not hesitate for one second! There are still plenty of things to do, places that are open and beautiful spots to spend some time relaxing. Old Orchard Beach is very much boarded up as are most of the coastal towns but it’s amazing to be the only one gazing out at the ocean all alone on the beach. There is nothing like it!
Happy St Patricks Day!! We (well, daughter and husband) are part Irish so they (we?) consider it our holiday! Lol. It just so happens that nearly everyone in our immediate family has birthdays this time of year, so much so that my daughter was born the same day as my brother… just 37 years apart. There are so many birthdays, I never knew I could actually get tired of cake. This little one never gets tired of baking them though!
Who could ever get tired of birthday fun with grandmas and grandpas??? Happy Birthday everyone!
