Another gloomy and rainy day is upon us. December has rolled around and not one flake of snow, yet. I’m hoping to see at least one snow fall, before I venture back to the sooner state. Maine is notorious for its frigid winters, but thankfully I won’t have to stay throughout the entire season.
Despite the colder weather, the beaches in Maine never lose their charm. In fact, they are much more desolate and tranquil than in the summer, in that, the only sounds you can hear are the crashing of waves. This makes a walk along the beach more peaceful and relaxing. Some people will just park their cars and sit inside, looking out at the ocean. However you choose to enjoy your time at the beach, you won’t be disappointed.
As the winter season progresses, many towns close to the ocean, become ghost towns. Many shops and restaurants close for the season, as they don’t bring in as many tourists. This might sound boring, but if you’re looking for a little peace and quiet during the holidays, these towns are the places to go- Kennebunk, Old Orchard, Wells, and any town you can find along the coast of Maine. Every moment I have, here, seems so fleeting, so I have to enjoy every minute of it to the fullest. It’s not every day I get to drive to the ocean.
