The temperature spiked up to almost 38 degrees here in Maine today. We couldn’t pass up this opportunity to take the dog for a walk on our favorite beach – Old Orchard. She hasn’t been out for a long walk since the snow starting flying. You know, like in October.
It was much colder than I expected. Luckily I was prepared having dressed in two coats, a hat and gloves. It was low tide so the sand was mostly firm (my preference) but the water “lakes” were plentiful. My socks got wet in the first 5 minutes of arrival. I really hate wet feet. Don’t worry though, I only complained once every 100 steps. I think that showed incredible restraint on my part.

A very happy puppy
She was glad for the exercise. Months of sloth like behavior were beginning to take a toll on her back side. Trust me, I sympathize.
Pretty, but the cause of my soggy socks.
Ok, one more of us. My pink hat was a gift from a friend I used to work with in Boston. I miss you Josie! Thanks for keeping my head warm.
I can’t wait until this snow is gone so I can exercise outside regularly. It’s so much better than the treadmill in the basement. Ah well, only 8 more weeks of winter.
