Crescent Beach

We went to the Valley Street Dog Park this morning and then headed off to the beach. The dog park was quite icy and although Amici is a "snow dog" he didn't seem to really enjoy the slippery ice or hard spots (which I don't blame him). I thought the beach might be a little easier on his paws and I knew it would be very relaxing to take in such a pretty view.

Amici has never been to Crescent Beach before. I hadn't been in a while either. It is usually a winter favorite for me as during the summer time the beach is quite populated. We had to park on the side of the road as the park's entrance is closed. We're walking along and see a path through the woods, so I thought we'd take that route since I had never been on it before. Well, the first pictures you see are of the "private" beach that we sort of happened upon. Thankfully, we weren't trespassing (as I asked another person walking her dog- and we didn't see any no trespassing signs). We forgot to take a pic of the red sand!! It was really pretty but we became caught up in the person we met and the husky/mix that she was with. The red sand was only on the upper bankings, but I had never seen the beach that color before. Truth be told, our little side route made me a feel a bit loss (but on the comfortable side) and I was glad we had the adventure but could still make our way to Crescent beach. Crescent beach appears to be only about 1 mile long but it was a great beach to take a walk on. :)

My favorite picture of the day.

I'm embarrassed! We live a few hours north of Cape Elizabeth, and I've never even heard of Crescent Beach. You're picture is so pretty, though, that it's certainly on our list of new places to visit.

Stay warm these next few days--it's going to be awfully cold, even for a husky!

Hi Amici,

What a fab beach. All that seaweed would keep Jake busy. I've tagged you on our blog to list 7 weird things about yourself. Seems to be the latest thing on DWB! Gus n Jake
