Yesterday Wilma, My Mom, and I Adventured to Old Orchard Beach in Old Orchard, Maine. Old Orchard beach has seven miles of shoreline, which include an amusement park, restaurants, shops, a boardwalk, and pier. It is a popular summer destination for tourists and rental homes.
We had a refreshing Adventure to Old Orchard Beach. We arrived into town finding a chaotic tourist scene so decided to ditch the idea of the boardwalk and see what else we could locate. I had thought it would still be considered off-season, but apparently the crowds had already invaded. We drove parallel to the coast and soon found a quiet beach. Parking was simple, and off we went. The beach entrance was a scenic pathway lined with gorgeous sea grass. There was a bench at the end of the “boardwalk” and then we found lovely views down the beach. Grateful to find a quiet spot we headed to the water. Wilma loved running, digging, and even rolled for some belly rubs on the beach. We of course did some shell searching, and found some good ones to take home for souvenirs. I am not sure why but I did not expect much from Old Orchard Beach but was pleasantly surprised, once we drove far from the influx of guests. A peaceful and relaxing way to end our vacation before heading home (Rating: 4).
