Long Sands

Long Sands is a beach all long and sandy in Southern Maine. It was popular with native Americans before white people came as a place for fishing and harvesting 25 pound lobsters from off the rocks (for real 25 pounds was the common size before whitey came) and then settlers came in the 1630s. Some wars happened, many settlers and many more natives were killed, natives left, the sea-trade came. Crazy things happened like a mile out into the sea from this beach, there is a tiny rock outcropping called Boon Island where a ship crashed and the sailors were stuck out there, this is the 1850s, anyways they were stuck for a couple of months in the winter and they started to eat the dead guys to stay alive, we don't remember this in history because the Donner party is more famous now.

Anyways they later built these big hotels all along it after the Civil War, they put in trolley tracks all along and people would promenade with their parasols and such, in the early 1900s, like Maye 1914, anyways before WWI a plane landed on the beach to bring some mail and people went ape over that.
Anyways we still go every summer to get sun-burnt in the day or get drunk at night or whatever, actually now that I think of it my first real kiss happened on this beach. Here is me and my dog at sunrise as the sky exploded over the water, oh and also so cool is that there is this old lighthouse at the end of the beach so you see that also, called Nuddle Light or Cape Nedick Light, it is oldy timey looking…

when I was a kid we would see people out on the little light house island walking there dog because they were the lighthouse keeper family, it is a computer now that runs this light, sad.
