Perkins Cove - Ogunquit, Maine


Perkins Cove, a section of Ogunquit, Maine, on a sunny and very hot summer afternoon. Both a working fishing village, and tourist attraction, the genuine scenic beauty sometimes battles head to head with the crowded and the “touristy.”

Settled in the 1640s, and formerly a part of the town of Wells, the fishing community of Ogunquit developed another identity as an artists’ colony, and now is more well known as a resort town.


Some prefer the off-season, some don’t mind the high season, but whenever you go, there’s much here to appreciate and enjoy. Climb up the wooden drawbridge and have a look around.

That photo of the Marginal Way from Perkins Cove with the wild flowers is awesome!

Thanks. I hope you have a successful season up your way this year, when those wildflowers come back.
