October 6, 2021 – Marginal Way – Maine

Tonight Wilma, Gus, My Mom, and I Adventured to Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine. Marginal Way is a well known, coastal, cliff walk along the Atlantic Ocean. The path is approximately 1.25 miles in length, looping along the coast. It is lined with benches, lovely landscaping, and has beach areas along the way. It is dog friendly from October 1 – March 31.

We had a refreshing evening Adventure to Marginal Way. It has probably been about three years since we have been there, and today was a perfect Fall night for a visit. We parked along the route and found a spot quickly and off we headed. First we had to explore the beach. The water was a beautiful color, and the sun was reflected uniquely on the crashing waves. The sun was beginning to set and it was really just a gorgeous scene. Definitely one that I felt I did not capture on camera but definitely lovely. There were many surfers bobbing in the waves, people enjoy the beach, and others fishing along the rocks. This was probably Wilma and Gus’ favorite part of the evening, Wilma loving energized digs in the sand, and Gus finding a perfect shell (haha!) Gus seemed a little more comfortable with the small waves and even did some digging on his own. Wilma continually wanted to play with Gus, but wrestling is quite challenging on a leash. We spent a good amount of time on the beach before heading to the Trail.

Although past the peak of flowers the trail had lovely flowers along the edge. The path was generally surrounded by greenery while in some areas you could step out onto the rocks or down to the shore. It was a little busier then I prefer but yet we were still able to find the location quite peaceful, everyone enjoying a piece of this lovely pathway. As I had to work today we did not have a long visit but it really was just the perfect Adventure. So glad we could return to Marginal Way today (Rating: 4).
