Last month I made a trip to the ocean with my fiancé and I started writing about it here. In turn, I actually skipped an entire day. Can you tell I’ve been busy?
I also wanted to apologize on the delayed posting of some of these photos and ones to come. I’ve been busy working on other projects and with my day job, so it’s been hard to find a free moment to write. Anyway, lets head to Maine…..
Low tide on the coast.
We arrived in Kennebunkport, Maine around 1 o’clock on Thursday afternoon. We decided to skip out on work, beat the traffic and enjoy the ride. It was a nice sunny Summer day and the roads weren’t too crowded, it was a great ride. Some people hate driving through the windy, bumpy, back roads of New England, not us, no, we love it!
One of the most exciting things about going to the ocean in the Summer is the first “sniff” of that salty ocean air! This is when Summer officially begins in my book!
waiting for help.
We rolled into York,ME and I navigated us through the heavily trafficked costal roads onward to Kennebunk, ME. We were taking a chance by heading to the beach in afternoon for two reasons:
- It’s Summer and the beaches crowd up fast
- There is limited parking at this beach
Where did the water go?
Thankfully for us our gamble paid off and we were able to find a spot after doing a quick loop around. Surprised we were able to find a parking spot so quickly, we grabbed our beach gear and headed over to soak up some vitamin D and enjoy the the coastal views of the Atlantic ocean.
Casualty of the low tide
I decided not to bring the camera to the beach because I wanted to relax with my beautiful fiancé and be one with the moment. Sometimes, I feel we “society” get too caught with trying to post things on Facebook or record something that we don’t enjoy being in the now. Plus, it’s nice disconnecting from technology.
After laying out on the beach, eating lunch and enjoying the usually cold Atlantic ocean, we decided to walk around the area a bit.

The beach was very busy -as expected- but it was nice to walk around on this hot Summer day. We walked over to the other side of the beach and found out that there was no beach- it was ocean and in this case- it ocean floor. Low tide, had left lots of boats stranded which was cool and some what sad to see. We decided to get a closer look, which wasn’t the best idea because sandals and the muddy ocean floor don’t mix to well! Needless to say, it was tough trying to walk back through all the muck. However, I got a few good photos from a unique view.
Here are a few more photos from Kennebunk. Enjoy!
Low tide= beach front.
Shells and muck.
Come Sail away.
As we left Kennebunk, we decided to stop over in Kennebunkport, ME to grab some ice cream and walk around the town a bit. It’s such a great New England town and is a must see! Photos below.
Wanna a ride?
Cool art inside.
Nice church in Kennebunkport
Let’s go this way!
That’s it for now folks. Next stop on our photo trip, Boothbay Harbor, ME! Until next time ( and I will try to make it faster than this one)!
