An Author’s Day Away

How does this Central Maine writer like to kickback and relax? A day trip to the coast is most welcome every now and then. And, it’s bound to be inspiring.

The forecast was perfect—60s and sunny with a coastal spring breeze. We packed the car (jackets/coffee/snacks) and headed south along The Moosehead Trail (Route 7 from Newport to Belfast), then east over Head of Tide Road to meet Route 1, where we drove north to Searsport to enjoy one of our favorite spots—Moose Point State Park. This coastal gem is the perfect spot to savor an afternoon picnic, revel in the views of Penobscot Bay, climb its rock-bound shore and trek the trails through an awe spruce forest. Ah, the magic of Maine!

Thanks for hopping on board, friends. What’s your favorite spot to enjoy on a day away?

Here sits a beautiful spot along the Maine coast

This section of beach is very well-known

I don’t even live here and listen to me boast

Usually you will never see a person here all alone

There are people walking hand in hand

Children darting in and out of the waves

So far I have not seen much damage to this beaches land

Lately it is this place I seem to crave

Soon I will head north for this beautiful place

Following the back roads along the coast of Maine

There is no reason to take the highway and race

I come up here to stop from going insane

I will collect shells be certain of that

Sea Glass too

As I walk this section it is nice to see it so flat

Today the Sky and Sea were such a pretty Blue.

(sorry as it is in B&W now…
