Wendy: We spent one beautiful afternoon at Popham beach (that's the fort in the background). We saw a few interesting sights, like the guy and his dog taking a nap together after playing fetch in the ocean, and the dive-bombing birds catching fish (video below), and the several Joel sightings on the beach!

Wendy: I slowed down the video to the left so you could see how the birds spiral right into the ocean just to pluck out a tiny fish (a few inches long), then imagine the strength they need to "fly" out of the ocean and into the air. It was fascinating and I watched them do it over and over again.
Wendy: Three part female harmony - that's my kind of music! If you want to hear my favorite song they performed that day, click on the link below.
Wendy: Since we stayed at an AirBnB this time, we had a full kitchen at our disposal. We took advantage of that several times by going to the local seafood market and buying our own clams, lobsters, and haddock at way lower prices that we can get at restaurants. The haul to the left is made up of all soft-shell lobsters, and made a few days worth of lobster rolls! We sat outside and enjoyed the view while picking the lobsters.
Wendy: For our final lunch in Maine we went back to the place where we had our first lunch, Day's, and I had the exact same lunch - steamers and a lobster roll. I'm going to miss this!
