Weekend Trip to Biddeford Pool Audubon

Last weekend, we visited the East Point Sanctuary in Biddeford Pool. The sanctuary, which was donated to the Maine Audubon in the late seventies, is tucked away, but once we spotted cars parked on the road, we knew our destination couldn’t be far. Our team followed a short, woodland trail that parallels the Abenakee golf course. The trail opens to green pasture with sweeping ocean views. Wood Island Lighthouse also dots the skyline.

The kids were taken with all of the little discoveries along the way — snails resting in tide pools, stones etched by the ocean floor, and curious seabirds cuddled close on the rocks. IMG_5332

The sanctuary is also perfect for kite flying. In the field above the ocean, there is plenty of open space for running with a kite so that it catches the sea breeze.

All of us were content to linger here for awhile. What a way to celebrate the unofficial start to summer!
