my toes in the sands of maine

I was in Maine for my friends Nicole and Nevin’s wedding back in June, for which they had rented a beautiful house on the beach. I’d never been this far up north in the US and I was pleasantly surprised of just how beautiful and green (and colder than expected) it was. This view is what I was greeted with just when I arrived…


The pinkish-purple sunset from up close.


Some of the best lobster I’ve eaten, literally caught a few hours before.


The house itself with the gigantic porch that came very handy.


I guess porches are a thing around here πŸ™‚


One thing’s for certain though, people take care of their property.


It was a very busy couple of days, but I managed to sneak out for a walk around the beach on this great sunny morning.


The high tide washes lots of things ashore, including logs like this.


I think this particular one had been here for some time as someone had decided to permanently mark it as his πŸ˜‰


The water and the wind create some interesting sand patterns.


Walks on an empty beach, priceless.


She was having fun πŸ™‚


The old wooden houses in Maine have a distinct style and vibe.


It wouldn’t be a town in the US if an American flag wasn’t waving around poetically in the distance πŸ˜‰


Sticks and plenty of running space… he was having the time of his life πŸ™‚


Despite his shorts and t-shirt, it would have been quite chilly if it wasn’t for the sun. I hadn’t realized before going there that even in June the weather is still much, much colder than say in NYC and it’s not advisable to jump in the water.


I’m really bad when it comes to following signs sometimes, especially when it’s for the sake of that perfect angle and shot πŸ˜‰


Just hanging.


Not sure if this was an old barn turned into a house or that’s just how it was designed, but nevertheless it had a certain character that just draws you in. Too bad I couldn’t peek inside.


Words of wisdom here πŸ˜‰
