The rain in Maine falls not so gently on the Coastal Plain.....

The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.   -Dolly Parton

Its springtime in Ogunquit, Maine. The weather is dramatic and always changing. One day 70 degrees (21c), and the next day ( or hour) 49 degrees (9 c) with 25 mile and hour winds. That's the weather for today. The rain on the seacoast is dramatic. The wind whips the rain into a frenzy as the waves crash against the rocks.
Perkins Cove is an interesting place to "watch the weather".  On the Atlantic side, the waves and the wind is dramatic. On the sheltered "cove" side where the boats are moored, its placid and peaceful.

Depending on the moon and tides storms can be quite intense. Today's rain is just rain, with a little wind. Its been a nice spring thus far, so an inch or two of rain is needed for the plantings.

The Marginal Way and Beach are great spots to view the tides and watch the crashing waves while it rains not so gently on the seaplain....
