East End Beach
The past three days have been gorgeous here in Portland, and I have actually gone swimming for the past three afternoons in the Maine ocean, at East End Beach, pictured above. And I mean swimming: I stayed in the water for twenty minutes or more, doing laps. Swimming! Not running in, screaming, dunking down and tearing back out again (what typically occurs when one attempts a dip at the Maine coast). The water is a good temperature right now. Cold, but not unbearable. This beach is at the top of Munjoy Hill on the East End of Portland, just minutes from my apartment. How cool is that?
