The last time I posted about how winter finally seemed to be giving way to spring, we got over a foot of snow two days later. So this time, all I'm going to say is, boy today sure was a nice day! Claire and I spent just about the entire day outside. First we went downtown and spent some time on the Maine State Pier watching the boats. We walked up to Old Port Candy Company (this is the only place I've ever found my favorite Jelly Belly, pink grapefruit, in bulk) and then wandered around Old Port a bit while we ate the treats we bought.
After being downtown, Claire and I agreed going to the beach would be nice, so we drove to Old Orchard Beach. We spent the afternoon playing in the sand, exploring, and collecting shells and other treasures. It was a little cooler and much more windy than downtown was, reminding me of a typical spring day like you'd have in Wisconsin. It was warm enough to take our socks and shoes off and stick our feet in the (cold!) water, but not warm enough to take off our jackets while doing so.
I haven't posted many pictures lately, but I'll make up for it today. Here are a few of my favorites, and you can check Flickr for more.
