Beachy kind of day... sort of!?

Today we had the best day! We headed up to Fort Popham/Popham Beach which became my favorite place on earth a few years ago when we were on vacation here. It was surreal to just BE there today! Here are a few photos from our walk...

Popham Beach

It was a crisp, bright spring day... that is for sure! I was amazed at the difference in the wind from the river side by Fort Popham and when we turned out on to the seaside Popham Beach. Such fun! We all cannot wait to get back out here this summer. It's a good hour drive (at least) from our house, but I don't care. I know we'll be out here all the time. It really is paradise.

After Popham, we headed in to Bath for a Subway lunch and then continued down to Reid State Park. We weren't there long before a snow squall crept up on us and turned us in to walking snowmen. It just blew up out of nowhere and by the time we were in the car and dried off, it was done.

This was another incredible beach that we're going to spend a lot of time exploring. I'm really feeling like we may need a lifetime to explore everything we want to out here. Who knows... maybe this is going to work out after all.

Still though... big time homesick feelings strike without notice. They bolt through the house and hurt when they hit... but quickly they go away again. They'll simmer down. We are having fun. We do love it. But oh, we miss home so much it hurts.

I don't want to end this on a sad note though. We're adjusting and have high spirits. We all have each other and that's that matters now. Besides, despite missing home... we're just having so much fun!
