There is nothing more harsh or beautiful than winter in Maine. This past week Mother Nature decided to serve us copious amounts of snow, along with bitter cold and unrelenting winds. I decided to brave the elements yesterday to see what it looked like at Pemaquid Point. I was hoping to see huge waves but since the winds were blowing onshore, the waters looked strangely calm along the rocks, although there were plenty of whitecaps further out. As you will see from the photos, the wind was whipping the snow around so I only stayed for about 15 minutes. By then my fingers were freezing, even with gloves on.
It’s hard to believe that this is one of the most popular locations for weddings in Midcoast Maine. But it is. Hidden beneath the many layers of winter are weddings waiting to come to life.
Like I said, crazy cold!So there you have it – winter in Maine! Today the sun shines bright, albeit bitter cold. Tomorrow we are getting another storm; 8-12 inches of very fluffy snow! What’s going on in your part of the world?
