Today is Day 14 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at Two Writing Teachers.
M is for Maine (and Montreal)
When I lived in Montreal as a child, summer vacations meant staying at Ocean Park, Maine.
It also meant:
-driving our station wagon, five kids and a dog, topped with the blue wooden luggage holder
-fights over who sat where
-setting up our tents or moving into a cottage
-running out for miles at low tide
-looking for shells
-building sand castles
-trying to wash all the sand off at the end of the day at the beach
-looking for blueberries
-going to the drive-in and lying in the back of the car in our pjs
-eating hot dogs over the fire
I have gone back to Maine a couple of times, but never back to Ocean Park.
When I met Bill, we discovered we had both lived in Montreal and we both had summered in or around Ocean Park. I wonder if we ever ran into each other so many years ago. Small world.
