There’s a saying in Maine: “If you don’t like the weather,
just wait a minute.”
Last Thursday night was nearly our first frost,
but nature delivered a surprise for the long weekend:
80-degree weather in mid October!
A fisherman looked overdressed in his waders.
Lobstermen in t-shirts were hauling in their catch.
One snack shack was boarded up for the winter,
but Spinney’s was still serving lobster rolls and Moose Tracks ice cream.
Swimming in a bikini, I surprised a kayaker in a wet suit.
The water wasn’t any colder than in June...really.
Scout, unconvinced, left the waves to the seals.
She dug a cool hole in the sand.
We stayed for moonrise and sunset,
wishing these warm days would never end.
