Merry Meet :))
...A little divine intervention and a sincere thank you for the gift I received.
I have always loved the beach, the smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm.
This past weekend I was very lucky and had the opportunity to spend 4 days and 3 nights in Wells Maine with my kids. We were getting our floors in our house tiled this weekend and I had been stressing about what I was going to do with my kids as we wouldn't be able to be home much at all over the three day weekend, and we really weren't suppose to walk on the tile at all. I had known about the tile for a month and had been looking for a place to stay for awhile. However money is tight and I couldn't find anything that I could justify spending the money on as everything I saw was at least $100 a night.
I silently said my thank you's and called them to book the deal. I just knew this was meant to be. My son had been asking to go to the beach for the last week and here it was! So now instead of being stressed about having to have my children out of the house for three days I was bouncing off the walls excited. I ran in to tell my children and we all started getting things packed as we would have to leave at 8:00 the next morning.
We had the most amazing weekend. The weather was actually fantastic. It was sunny and almost 60 degrees most of the weekend. Warm enough to spend lots of time on the beach and outside with a very light jacket on. We spent the first day on the beach picking up all kinds of shells and marveling at the sealife in the little tidal pools on the beach. We actually saw starfish. :)))) My kids were very excited.
We also spent a lot of time in Perkins Cove. Perkins Cove is in Ogunquit Maine, one town over from where we were. It's a little cove with boats, shopping, and an amazing walk along the cliffs of the ocean. Another place that just feels like home to me. I normally don't like shopping but we loved walking the quaint little artisan shops and seeing the artists at work. The walkway was incredible. I actually was able to let go and go down onto the rocks themselves with my children. Something you would appreciate if you were there. lol :)
Love and Blessings,
