Where The Surfers Go ~ Ogunquit Maine

There are all these little pockets of sandy beaches in an area of the Marginal Way in Ogunquit. They are created by the ocean moving sand from the big dune beach across the Ogunquit River down to the Marginal Way. The sand drifts and piles in spots among the rocks making it look like parts of the California coast.  Big ridges of rock  separate the little beaches so it feels cozy and private. All the surfers come to this area. They launch from this beach and swim over toward the big beach where they line up to catch the incoming waves.

This is one of my favorite painting spots on the marginal Way especially when there are big waves.  


  1. You are so fortunate to live near such a beautiful place where you can paint regularly. We were there this summer--my husband's first time on the Marginal Way. Very impressed with the views, waves, and people floating quickly toward the ocean by the water moving out at low tide. Love your work too. Someday I will plan to join one of your paint outs.

  2. Ann, Wonderful! Yes I am very lucky to live here. Do come and paint with us, we have a really good time.
