Ogunquit, Maine – Beauty by the Sea

The following is a guest post from this week’s contributor, Nick Sullivan, who shares with us his amazing time-lapse video and narrative of his time in Ogunquit, Maine.

“Ogunquit” is said to mean “Beautiful Place by the Sea,” and few would disagree.

If you love a rocky-coast shoreline — or are more of a sandy-beach person — Ogunquit, Maine, as well as the Perkins Cove area, has you covered!

The famous Marginal Way, a easy mile-plus paved walking path above and along the Atlantic starting in the town, offers spectacular views of the blue-green waves, with plenty of benches for rest and contented relaxation. At the southern end is Perkins Cove and the well-placed Oarweed Restaurant, which offers a welcome post-walk cool-off with views of the water. It’s where I was able to capture the sunrise and moonrise scenes at dawn and in the wee hours.

Cove Cafe offers terrific breakfasts, and for a nice (more pricey) dinner, we enjoyed Joshua’s on Route 1 in Wells, about six miles up the road.

Both Ogunquit and Perkins Cove feature some nice shops, boat rides from the Cove, and opportunities to just watch the fishing boats come and go under the iconic hand-operated drawbridge leading to the ocean.

This busy, yet small, tourist town has evolved from once being a small fishing and farming village. Nature lovers, sailors, and artists mesmerized by Ogunquit’s beauty, have made this place their home.  If you ever find your way up the northeastern coast, be sure to check out the stunning scenery that Ogunquit, Maine has to offer!

Many thanks to Nick, for once again, sharing his amazing videos with us!

Happy Travels!
