Footbridge Beach and Perkins Cove
Today I’ll be in the woods of Old Lyme, CT helping out with Ninja Zombies, but before I go I wanted to recap a few more things from Maine, specifically my 4th of July, which of course started out with a patriotic bowl of oats…
Ingredients: locally grown strawberries and blueberries, peanut butter, greek yogurt, and oatmeal.
After I let this digest a bit, Michal and I decided to rent bikes for the remainder of our vacation so we could have the freedom to get around without having to deal with the 4th of July traffic.
First stop with our bikes was Footbridge Beach in Maine which is my favorite beach in the area.
Enjoying fresh cut watermelon on the beach is one of life’s cheap luxuries.
After a few hours of relaxing on the beach, we got back on our bikes and headed down to Perkin’s cove for lunch.
We also discovered a really amazing cafe I had never been to. They make homemade lemonade from scratch, and they have the most amazing back porch where you can sit.
Around this time we started to burn out, so we got back on our bikes and headed back, and after a nap and an epic outdoor dinner with the neighbors, we got back on our bikes to make one last trip…
It just wouldn’t be the 4th of July without fireworks.
