Maybe I’m a whimp, but I’ve never even considered sticking more than a toe in the ocean when we visit Maine.  It’s too cold for me!  We’ve even been to Southport Island  in the dead of July and it was still freezing! Last Saturday we drove along the coast after crossing the bridge out of Portsmouth New Hampshire. I admired the brave souls in wet suits enjoying the surf along Cape Neddick. At this time last year I remember seeing surfers off the Newport coast in Rhode Island. I’m always amazed when I see people surfing in these parts, it seems like an atypical sport for New England!
