Spring has been very slow to arrive in Maine this year. Indeed, we're about to be slammed with more snow - but we did take advantage of a tiny amount of sunshine this past weekend and took to the beach. It was cold! But a lovely brisk walk was had - until Raf got his boot stuck in some sinking sand (we had offered warnings that this could happen!) and his foot became soaking wet. Poor boy hobbled back to the car - with promises of donuts if whinging was to a minimum!
