After Sue got out of work Friday, we got right to our First Day of Summer adventures! We jumped into the car and drove up to Long Sands Beach in York, ME to the Sun and Surf restaurant. It's right on the beach and we got a table on the outside patio. Even though it was hot, we had brought out jackets as the wind was strong and chilly blowing off the water.
Some of the folks who came out there didn't last long and asked to be reseated. But it was so nice out there, we just put our windbreakers on and really enjoyed their special brilliant turquoise Surf Margarita special with our dinners.
After dinner, Sue wanted to go up to Nubble Lighthouse and take some pictures as the waning sun was casting some interesting light. Interesting, but on the drive up the peninsula, we saw 15 houses for sale. The Nubble's on sale! That is a lot of houses in one small area. Maybe folks found that they can't take the storms, because it can get really brutal out there. I don't know, but we both found it very, very odd.
The Nubble was packed with visitors, but we managed to find a parking spot right off. We wandered around and Sue got one shot in particular of the lighthouse that is so unique of the Nubble, the composition was just unbelievable.
From there, we took the back road along the shore, down into York Beach, and then out to the Cape Neddick bridge. Sue wanted to try another shot back toward Nubble Light, so, while I parked on the bridge, she hustled out onto the small beach there and did her thing.
By the time we got home, it was getting dark and the moon was poking through the trees. Sue took some shots of that. And though the moon was nice, it was no where near as dramatic as it had been last year with all of the storm clouds creating waves of color across the sky.
