This and That

On Monday our niece from California stayed with us
and it was great to spend time with her.

A surprise sunset greeted us as we took a walk through
Dock Square and reached the tidal basin after dinner...

She was about set out on a new adventure...
early Tuesday morning she drove off to Vermont.

Tuesday evening D and I took a ride to Ocean Park
near Old Orchard Beach...a special place.

The tide was very low...

we enjoyed watching eider ducks and their young...

We took a path and discovered this beautiful
little garden by the sea... the garden was lined
with clam shells!

The path was charming and people had attached
all kinds of whimsical beach findings to the fence...

Our favorite ice cream stand in Pine Point
was still opened
and that was a wonderful way to end the day!

It's good to be spontaneous sometimes!
