"The Cove"

Perkins Cove, a long beloved destination for generations of Ogunquit visitors, is home to artisan shops and galleries, coastal dining and sweet treats, sailing and fishing adventures, idyllic spots to picnic or watch fishing boats as they deliver fresh-caught lobsters to the dock, or to meander over its historic wooden drawbridge. "The Cove" is also home to the southern entrance of the famed Ogunquit Marginal Way. 

Close your eyes and inhale the fresh briny breeze that drifts from the deep blue Atlantic. Now, imagine the scent of Maine lobster steaming, the sounds of seagulls and happy voices and laughter and music. The sights: waves crashing on the craggy shore of Oarweed Cove, fisherman returning from sea with holds of delicious lobster, haddock, and mighty bluefin tuna; sails billowing as they fill with a fresh breeze, families and friends meandering through our historic cove - visiting shops, tasting the bounty of the sea at Cove eateries, skipping aboard tour boats, and walking across our touchstone; the historic Perkins Cove footbridge.

To Trudy, What a place. The sunrises are really something. Tried to go swimming but the water is much too cold. – Emily
