I was not leaving Maine without going to Acadia, even for just one day.
Finally, we got there.
Armed with my map, I am ready to go.
The kids loved the pond, but hey, we're in Maine!!! Where's the ocean? Where's the beach???
So we went to Sand Beach, in the park.
My three darlings, soaking up the sun. What would I be without three daughters, I can't imagine.
We had packed a lunch, and drinks. We didn't hear much from the kids all day. They were too busy with the ocean.
Two boys, two girls. Once again, I've been blessed.
We were all having a great time, when suddenly, everybody was yelling:
I kid you not.
At first, I think a lot of people thought it was a joke.
But it was NO joke.
Are ya kiddin' me?????? A shark???? In Maine????
It was for real. He swam back and forth, while everyone watched from the shore, then he swam away.
After a while, everything went back to normal.
Sand Beach is really beautiful.
On a hunch, I bought this pack of ducks in the drug store, I think it had 10 ducks in it. $9.99, 50% off.
The girls played with them all week. Proof to me that sometimes, parents try too hard to please their children with expensive toys.
Some sand, some water, lots of sun, and 10 yellow rubber duckies made them very, very happy.
I hope you're not sick of Maine yet. I only wish I could go and stay for a month. I am thinking next summer, that we should do just that, DH and I and Roy. Let the kids come visit if they want.
Ah, to be in Maine for a month in the summer, sounds like heaven to me.
The waves began to come in pretty heavy, and the real fun began.
C'mon in. The water is fine.
By the way, I used to be as thin and trim as my middle daughter, yes, once, a long time ago.
I think I was 12.
Oh, and by the way, if you're stupid enough to wear your old and worn jockey shorts to the beach, BEWARE, cause I will take your picture.
I love Maine.
