One evening last summer Michael & I decided to take a little spontaneous road trip – we hopped in the mini and drove south to Biddeford Pool. I’d recently been to the area for a shoot and from the moment I drove onto Mile Stretch Road, the sandy strip of beach that connects Biddeford Pool to the mainland, I knew Michael would absolutely love it here. Somehow, it feels like you’ve entered a completely different place – nothing like the rest of the Maine coast that we’ve experienced, and something very similar to the sandy, strips of beach back home.
After taking a little tour of the area, we drove to Pool Lobster Company to enjoy a seafood dinner, complete with onion rings for Michael and french fries for me, on one of their picnic tables overlooking the water. It was the perfect setting for such a spur of the moment road trip.
Once we’d finished eating, we explored the area a bit more by foot and in the car taking in the sites, the ocean, and the homes. Maine never ceases to amaze us with all that it offers.
