Weekend in Maine

We spent the weekend in Maine with my parents and my brother's family.

All ten of us went to the beach on Saturday and experienced some wicked waves from Hurricane Bob. ("Wicked" here = "good"). After a few huge waves, most of us were done swimming for the day.

High tide finally reclaimed the beach and forced a change of activity.

The Evening was spent out for the "kids" "without kids" (and Bingo for the kids).

Sunday we decided to further experience Hurricane Bob by going up the coast and seeing the force of nature.

First we stopped at Biddeford Pool, where the surf against the rocks was truly incredible. For me, this was the high point of the weekend.

Next stop: Portland Head Light. The smaller lighthouse off the coast was being buffeted by some large waves.

I know many people would be disappointed with the weather this weekend. Originally we were planning to hike Mount Washington, but the weather prevented that. In the end, we found things that used the weather to our advantage.
