The sailors called the place "Old Orchard " after an apple orchard that was sitting on land high above the sea and easy to see.
In 1842 the first steam railroad from Boston-Portland brought tourists to this lovely beach.In 1892 events included electric trolley cars, a Beach Kite Horse Racing Track, and the first Merry-Go-Round in Amerika. -wikipedia
My favorite sistah knows how much I love the beach. After seeing the Long Sands beach, she also made sure that I get to see Old Orchard Beach.
It was at a coastal town just south of Portland
This beach reminded me of what I usually see in movies. It was an attractive beach with a beautiful pier.
I thought how great it would be to visit the place on summertime.
I imagined myself walking along the 7 mile beach barefooted.
The idea of playing at the nearby boardwalk arcades and amusement park was also appealing and of course indulging on yummy fried beach foods : pizza.fries.burgers.milkshakes.
I got to enjoy the beach view and felt the cool breeze on my cheeks.
I got to take a sweet hotshot of my sistah and brotha in law while they play sweetie stuff.
