Most people would like to go to the beach in Maine… in the summer. The Mister and I go in February. It’s cold, its windy, but its also beautiful. The ocean washes all the snow away and its incredibly liberating to walk a long sandy stretch of beach and only see a few other humans. We go every year, we get a room with a balcony that opens right over the water, something we could never afford even if we could get the reservation ‘in-season’. Its easily the highlight of my winter, something I anticipate for months (yes, months) in advance. The only downside for me is there is not much to find when exploring the tide pools.
