Went out yesterday for a ‘First Walk’ on Popham Beach. I know you really want to see the photos instead of reading about how cold and windy it was. Really, though, it was a beautiful day! Sunny and brisk but any day at the beach is a good day. Happy New Year!
Popham Beach is a wonderful day trip no matter when you come to Maine. It’s amazing to see the changes wrought by storms and tide as the beach is constantly shifting and moving. Some years we can’t walk to the islands. This year it was easy to get there at low tide. Check the tide charts before you go to insure there’s ‘enough’ beach for a long walk. High tide here can be 11-12 feet, which eats up the shoreline pretty quickly. Another option is to go to Fort Popham, farther down Rt 209. Or Fort Baldwin and the Phippsburg Colony, along the road to Fort Popham.
