Maine Trip: Day 1

We just got back from an awesome 2-day trip to Maine! Josh has a two week Spring Break from classes right now, so we decided it would be a perfect time to do some exploring in southern Maine. Our first stop was York, which is about an hour and 40 minutes away from our house.
We took the 1A highway that runs right along the coastline. York was a beautiful, quaint town and the beach was so picturesque.

We continued north a few minutes until we got to Cape Neddick's famous "Nubble" Lighthouse. 

 We played here for a long time. It was such a pretty spot and Bryn was in heaven climbing on the rocks.
We lucked out and it was the warmest day we've had in months! Blue skies and nearly 40 degree weather!
So pretty! I can't wait to bring my family here in a few months!
 After lunch we checked into our hotel in Ogunquit, Maine - about ten minutes north of York. Since winter is totally Maine's off-season (most of the stores and restaurants are closed til the summer) we found a really cheap rate at the Meadowmere Resort...and we pretty much had the place to ourselves!
We spent a lot of time in the pool, trying to pretend we were faaaaaar away from New Hampshire's arctic winter!
We planned on getting fresh seafood in Perkin's Cove, but didn't realize all the amazing seafood restaurants we had researched were closed til summer. Major bummer! We definitely need to come back in a few months. 
Even the ice cream shops were closed for the season, so we picked up some Ben & Jerry's from the grocery store, watched a movie in our hotel room, and called it a night!
