Vacation Fun!

Today was my husband's last day off, so I threw a load of laundry in the washer and left the rest of the mess for later;)
We went to the state park for a paddle, it was a beautiful day, not too humid and the water at the lake was warm, so we got to get in some swimming too.

We start at the launch site and paddle along the shoreline which takes us past the campgrounds and lots of little coves.

We always take a break when we get around to the other side. There is a little beach where the old campgrounds were, so it is a nice spot to take a lunch break and go for another swim, before we paddle back across.

And now for more of Maine. We didn't want to overdo it, or travel too far, so we decided to check out the area from wells, down to York. I have to admit, it was not my kind of place, a lot of traffic and tourists and mostly open coastline. I prefer the areas with islands and less people. But it was a nice day and we ended up taking a walking trail that follows the shore.

This area had lots of rocky coastline.

Lots of coves and more rocks.

The walk goes on until you reach the Ogunguit beach area. It was hot as heck and I wish I had know they had little beaches on the walk. I could have thrown my suit on and enjoyed a cool dip in the ocean.

The beach is large and long. The whole area is basically one beach after another, so if you love to go to the ocean, it is a wonderful place to visit or stay. I did not get any pictures of the inside of our cabin or Lauri's house. Tomorrow I will have photos of our kayak trip. Nothing exciting, but we spent our time relaxing this time, so no big adventures;)

Oh it looks so pretty! Being from Kansas, I've never had the opportunity to dip my feet in the ocean... maybe someday. :)

This was too good to miss. I would have thrown the lot in the washer too.
