How to spend a spring day in Mid Coast Maine.

How to spend a spring day in Mid Coast Maine.

April is a little early for the Maine tourist season to start, but over the weekend we were fortunate enough to host a whole Inn full of guests. Jesse and I are a little out of practice serving 18 breakfasts, but I think we did well. We got up very early and prepped everything (secret to success is preparation!). Everyone left the breakfast room happy and Jes and I were pleased. Monday morning came and everyone left the Bed and Breakfast. The house was quiet once again. I realized that I had better start taking advantage of the time and good weather that we have been given. 9:00am Monday, I packed my camera, some bottles of water and headed out with the family. First stop Willow Bake Shop for some homemade donuts.

My favorite: Butter Crunch

Next stop – The Breakwater Lighthouse. The Breakwater is one of my favorite spots on the MidCoast. At low tide there is a little beach there that many scour for sea glass. I like it because the waters there are real working waters. In the summer you can see lobster boats rushing from buoy to buoy for their lobsters. The Breakwater is a nice granite walk out into the ocean and at the end is a lighthouse. Unfortunately, the lighthouse is never open when I get there, but that’s ok, the rocks in front are a great place to sit and relax.

I made the kids walk all the way before they could have their donuts. Walk is a 7/8ths of a mile (each way). They did a great job and really enjoyed their donuts.

Since I felt an urgency to continue enjoying the beautiful day, next stop with the family, Birch Point Beach.

Birch Point is definitely a hidden gem and I feel a little unsure if I should share it with the world. I first discovered this wonderful beach with the my son’s first grade class. The beach at low tide has a lot of tidal pools that small and big children can explore. This beach area in Owls Head has a sand beach, wonderful picnic tables, bathrooms and great views.

A great way to end our little staycation – near Birch Point Beach, Owls Head General Store for hamburgers, not just any hamburger, the best burger in Maine – per Food Network.

We sat outside on some picnic benches and enjoyed our food.

After a long day, we returned to Camden Maine and relaxed at our quiet, wonderful downtown property! I encourage you to come now to the Mid Coast of Maine. Some things are not open yet, but the things that are, WOW are they wonderful. I had a great day!

Hope to see you soon.
