we hadn’t been back to maine since christmas, so it was time to get wolfgang into his carrier and hop a flight east. we were greeted by cold windy wet weather, all made better by my parents warm welcoming house where my sister and her own brood also joined us (from montreal!). yesterday’s beach walk was short lived due to the freezing cold, wet wind. but this afternoon we tried again at the perfect time. just as we got to goose rocks beach, the sun came out and a local band started playing on the front porch of the tides inn beach club. after running around in the sand with wolfgang (who seemed to have a much better time than yesterday) we decided a bloody mary was in order, while relaxing on the large cushioned rocking chairs on the lawn in front of the band. happy memorial day.
