This is an amazing beach. I

This is an amazing beach. I go there all the time with Tucker (the TWP travel pooch). He loves it there. Waves are not high, very scenic, lots of room to run. Weekends can be a little busy in the summer months. Be sure to check out Scratch Bakery which is on Preble Street right around the corner from beach. They have awesome home made bagels for people and peanut butter dog treats for the pups. Watch the water temps - we're in Maine - it gets cold!
