A Slice in Pictures

I'm at the beach. Wells Beach in Maine. The first two days were cloudy and cool. I woke up today to sunshine. Here are some pictures for you...
Our beach house...mere steps from the beach.

As soon as we arrived, we walked to the beach.
YAY! We are finally here!
Jack has begun his search for sea glass!
Jillian and Grammy test the water!
Jack is STILL searching for sea glass!
Our first family game night! Uno ATTACK.
The Marys telling secrets & figuring out technology together...yikes!

5:00am on the beach. Morning pages. 

An early morning selfie...

Reading starts our day.

Auntie Chelle & Jillian selfie.
This trolley looked like a good idea. (It wasn't!)
The famous lobster roll from The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport, ME. Best. Lobster roll. Ever.
Waiting for the trolley...again. 
Our version of rebellion.

This was only our first day and a half. The sun and the beach and my family are waiting for me...

  3. What a great photo essay. You have me wondering why the trolley was not a good idea...maybe there is a future slice waiting to be written.

  4. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy every day as you did the first one.
