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.
