A day at the beach – Pemaquid Beach

This Friday, we decided to kick off the holiday weekend with a trip to Pemaquid Beach. Always up for a challenge, I agreed to add and extra 9-year-girl and 10-year-old boy to the posse, my kids’ BFFs..

Summer and Maddie were to the first to brave the chilly waters!

Pemaquid Beach is a great beach for families; there’s no riptide to be concerned with, it’s not too big, hardly ever over-crowded, and they have a really cool little nature center and snack shack for the hungry troops. There’s also room to roam and plenty of salt -water habitat exploring to be had.

Crabbing is a great way for kids to meet other kids!

If the sand and surf aren’t keeping the kiddos’ attention, the lagoon to the left of the beach has some most excellent rock crab and hermit crab hunting adventures.

There's tons of fun crabbing adventures! All crabs were released after a brief visit to the bucket.

Time on the Pemaquid Peninsula is always a great time, it’s everything that summertime in Maine is famous for: a laid back time, happy kids, relaxed adults, salt and sand, and the drone of lobster boats working their gear offshore. Have a great holiday weekend, folks! We hope you get some time to unwind and enjoy beautiful Maine!
