Dino-mite, in more ways than one! Not only is the plastic bottle dinosaur sculpture on the front lawn of Vermont’s state capitol a dynamite way to remind us all to recycle, it was a dynamite day! The rain had stopped, the clouds were gone, the sun was shining, and it was beautiful.
On our way to Ogunquit, Maine, we made a quick stop in Montpelier, Vermont’s state capitol. It was quite a charming and attractive town along the river, and the capitol was very picturesque. So was Dino!
The drive through Vermont and New Hampshire was gorgeous, a constant scene of rolling lush green hills and mountains.
Ogunquit is a cute little seaside town just south of Kennebunkport where the Bush (41) family lives during the summertime.
After we arrived and checked in to our motel, we went to Perkins Cove, a quaint lobster fishing village with nice shops and seafood restaurants as well beautiful homes. It is also where Marginal Way begins, a picturesque walking path that follows the rugged coastline. It is 1-1/2 miles long, so we walked the length of it and returned to Perkins Cove.
What a beautiful coastal area this is! The walking path was fabulous, and one of the most gorgeous coastal walks I have ever been on. Not only is the coastline scenic, the path itself was beautifully landscaped and maintained. All along the path were very nice benches to sit and enjoy the spectacular views of the sea below. We happened to be there while two surfers and two kayak surfers were enjoying the waves, so we had fun watching and photographing them. (It really made me miss kayak surfing, though!)
Back at Perkins Cove, we enjoyed a delicious seafood dinner at the Lobster Shack where they sure know how to make great Baja-style fish tacos and a great fish sandwich!
