(For you Mainers… the word is that the Morse River has cut a new channel more or less straight out to the ocean – instead of along the beach – and that sand deposition should begin to restore the beach… it was cut back about 150 feet since November last year)
There were lots and lots of people and dogs on the beach today, a freakishly warm day for March. Who would let an opportunity like this go by? Not many, and the beach seemed crowded, especially for this time of year. We saw kids playing in the surf, and some who got their feet wet and came right back out. I’m guessing the water was about 48 degrees F. This page tells us the average March sea surface temperature in Maine is about 5 degrees Celsius, which is 41 F…
We saw some of Molly Bee’s dogs, including some odd ones, like this pair,
Her “keeper” didn’t know what they are… The boy sure stood like a boxer, but one about 8 inches tall…. and long…. dachsund boxer whoknowswhat… And there were puppies, yellow lab and newfie most notably.
