Perkins Cove, Ogunquit Maine
April 21, 2017 - April 23, 2017
At what was then called Fish Cove, near the unnavigable Josias River, fishing was a major livelihood. But the cove was unprotected by a headland or breakwater from Atlantic storms, so fishermen had to protect their boats by hauling them ashore each night. Resolving to create a safe anchorage, they formed the Fish Cove Harbor Association, and dug a channel across land they purchased to connect Fish Cove with the Josias River. When the trench was complete, erosion helped to further widen the passage. The resulting tidewater basin is called Perkins Cove, spanned by a manually operated draw footbridge. With a 3½-mile beach of pale sand and dunes forming a barrier peninsula, connected to the mainland in 1888 by bridge across the Ogunquit River, the village was discovered by artists. It became a popular art colony and tourist area. Particularly after 1898, when the Ogunquit Art Colony was established, it was not unusual to see both artists and fishermen working around Perkins Cove. To accommodate summer crowds, several seaside hotels and inns were built. Marginal Way, a scenic trail, runs along the coast from Perkins Cove to Ogunquit Beach. Ogunquit separated from Wells in 1980 and receives visitors from as far as Australia. Part of Stephen King's The Stand, published in 1978, is set in Ogunquit. Ogunquit was named America's Best Coastal Small Town in USA Today's 10 Best Readers' Choice 2016.

Exploring OGUNQUIT MAINE: North Beach, Marginal Way and Perkins Cove
Come along with me and my friend Natasha as we explore Ogunquit Maine, IMHO the best beach of the northeast Atlantic coast.
I went to Ogunquit a few times as a child with my parents and I must admit I have a special fondness for it in my heart. I have been back about 4 times on my own or with friends in my adult life. It is just a 5.5-hour drive from Montreal so a great 4-day weekend destination.
Check out Natasha's channel
Our day started with lunch and finding a beach with free parking. In the summer, you don,t get here early, parking will be a challenge. We spent a couple of hours on North Beach.
After a candy store stop, we headed back right into Ogunquit where we did find late afternoon parking. Since we were not hungry yet we decided to walk the cliff trail called the Marginal Way. It is a breathtaking easy hike along the Atlantic coast that ends in pretty Perkin's Cove.
There is a trolley system in the summer months so we hopped on a trolly to make our way back to Ogunquit, before heading out for the best lobster dinner ever....which will be the next video.
