July - Day 5

My husband was off work today and we'd planned on going to the beach.

Understand that he spent many of his formative years in Florida, so to him, the beach means not only hot weather, but very warm water temperatures as well.

Since we've been in Maine (well over a decade) he has been to the beach with us a total of THREE times. Yes, three. He hates the Maine beaches. The frigid water temperatures just don't cut it for him.

SO... the forecast for today was in the 90s, and although I'd badgered my sweet husband into going to the beach with us, we decided at the last minute to go to Aquaboggan, instead. It's a water park in Saco, Maine, and they offer $12.00 Mondays.

BEST decision we've made in a long time. Just like the beach, only better. With fun slides, lawn chairs, a wave pool, and ice cream. And no sand to deal with at the end of the day.

Did I mention ice cream?

Ah yes. I highly recommend it. Aquaboggan, that is. Ice cream is optional. :)
