An hour and a half later from Lexington, we arrived in Ogunquit. Ogunquit is a summer beach town. There were many inns, bed and breakfasts, hotels and motels, but I wasn't sure many people lived in Ogunquit. When we got there, we tried looking for parking, but it seemed that everywhere was full (told you people took their beaches very seriously!) In the end, we found some parking for a steal ($12 entry, instead of $25 at the beach), and walked down Marginal Way heading for the beach.
The walk was about 1.5 miles, and took about 30 minutes. I found out that Maine was mostly rocks, and although it had a lot of coastline, most of it were rocks and there were very few beaches.

On the beach, people made all sorts of sand sculptures. I say sand sculptures, because some were huge!
|people actually used shovels to make this!|

At Oarweed, I had the lobster dinner, which seafood chowder, a whole lobster and homemade dessert. Actually, everyone, including Jas (but excluding Becca, because she is vegetarian) had their own lobster. Oh, the lobster is such a beautiful creature, not to mention being incredibly delicious too! This must be the best meal I've had in this country yet. Yummy! Thanks to Caleb and Ricki for the meal, it was so delicious!
