No farming, no marketplace, no processing! Taking the weekend off to enjoy some solitude.

Our three days of sheeting rains have finally blown out to sea…

So, off for my walk I went. I was beginning to feel a little stir crazy stuck in the house.  The dory down in the river was just about holding its own and plenty of water. The sun was just breaking through the clouds and it was pretty balmy for our neck of the woods. A real treat  from Mother Nature.

After a long walk along the beach, I crossed over the dunes and into the woodlands before heading up to the farm.  My first real walk since the surgery, but it felt great being out there again strolling along my favorite paths.  The ‘bittersweet’ ending to yet another fabulous season. I snapped the last of any natural color we’ll be seeing here for the next few months along the way…. the rose hips, juniper berries and the bittersweet brambles, and then onto my final destination.. the farm, pulling the last of the cabbage, horseradish, kale and spinach. This time of the year I’m always torn with mixed emotions.  As much work that the farm entails, and a good rest I surely could use.. I’ll still miss it every day until Spring. Winter well, farm… you’ve more than served me well.

And when I returned home, in my mailbox I found my 2017 Johnny’s Seed catalog! Timing.. as they say is everything. 🙂

It’s finally beginning to look and feel like summer in our neck of the woods! Down in the Cove, the lobstermen have been readying for another busy season, foot traffic has picked up along our beautiful Marginal Way, shopkeepers are re-opening every day, and clearly the bumper to bumper crowds we see each new season has begun.  But who can blame them, as according  to USA Today, Ogunquit has just been named America’s number one ‘Best Coastal  Town’!!

Though all of we locals are thrilled with the recognition, in the backs of our minds we’re secretly wondering, where will we put this influx of yet more visitors?!

During the summer months, the population of tiny Ogunquit swells as visitors flock to our lovely pure white sandy beach backed by sea grass-covered dunes along our stunning Maine coast. Before gaining fame as a resort community, we attracted prominent artists, but now, besides gallery hopping, visitors can whale watch, explore the tidal pools and estuaries, kayak, hike, or go deep-sea fishing just off our coast too!

And no visit to Ogunquit would be complete without a stroll along our breathtakingly panoramic Marginal Way, or a stop into one of the many quaint shops, and you’d be hard pressed choosing just one, from the hundreds of fine dining establishments, our beautiful ‘Village By the Sea’ has to offer. Let the season begin!

This weekend, we are celebrating beautiful Christmas By the Sea here, in Ogunquit. Activities all weekend long should keep you pretty busy.  Tree lighting, Fairs, Wine & Food  tastings, a parade, and following the parade,  a bonfire down on the beach. And because it’s such a beautiful day today here, it will be a perfect evening for the fireworks display down on Main Beach.
