Oceanfront Dining. Closed for the season, but as the lush green is promised to return to the grass - so are the customers to the diner. Light blue skies meet definitively on the horizon line with the shimmering ocean ripples. Summer seemed to be only a heartbeat away last week as the warmer temperatures brought sunlight one hour later into the day. In an attempt to take hold of the season, we drove to Boothbay and took in the warm rays and walked along the oceanfront.
As we watched the boats motor in and out of the harbor, it felt nice to breathe the fresh ocean air. The snowmelt was well under way everywhere the eye traveled, from the farmer's fields on Route 1 to the dockside cottages in the harbors - until this week. Now Spring sits around a few more bends, while we patiently await for the rejuvenation that it brings. Here are a few photos from our adventure.
