Hunt For Sand Dollars On The Beautiful And Easy Long Sands Beach In Maine
When thinking about Maine, a lot of people immediately imagine the coast. Rocky and rough, it’s one of the state’s most defining features. But what some people from away don’t know is that quite a few of our beaches are beautiful and sandy, perfect for a leisurely walk or day in the sun. While we love these areas in the summer, year-round they’re beautiful for explorations. And searching for the elusive sand dollar is a great activity at one southern Maine beach!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
