Ogunquit, Beautiful Place by the Sea

We took a day trip to Ogunquit, Maine yesterday.  Ogunquit is Algonquin and means "Beautiful Place by the Sea".  Native Americans sure had that right when they chose the name, even in today's world of commercial development and tourism, it is still a spectacularly beautiful place.


We took a 2 hour cruise on the Silverlining, a sailboat that leaves from Perkins Cove.   The Silverlining is a 42 foot sloop built in 1939 entirely of wood and bronze.  In 1982 she was purchased by the current owner and captain and restored.  We have been on the Silverlining several times.  It is a very enjoyable ride, the views are lovely and the captain and his mate are kind and attentive.
