This is a guide to upcoming articles I will be publishing on Ogunquit, a small town at the southern tip of Maine. The guide serves as a preview to these articles, before they are written and published, showing the beautiful Ogunquit river, the town and the beach named after it, in mid September. This was when kids were force off the beach, back to school, and just before the autumn arrived in full force. Some articles will explore the Marginal Way, Perkins Cove, Cape Neddick, York, Wells, Kennebunkport and plenty of public beaches in the area. Some will focus on hotels we’ve stayed at – the Tidal Suites at the Norsemen and the Cliff House at Bald Head Cliff. There will be plenty of 360° panoramic photos that can be viewed with the Google Cardboard – some scenaries simply cannot be experienced without the use of VR.
I’ve also brought the current obsession of my life together with travel and videography. Most of these articles will be of interest to those who are model aeronautically-inclined. While I did not have room to bring big model airplanes, I did pack two micro airplanes and a variety of kites. While flying a sailplane on the peaceful and expansive Ogunquit Beach proved to be a relaxing pastime, fighting the precarious Bald Head Cliff in inclement weather against a stormy sea turned out to be quite challenging. Equipment for the pursuit of a frustration-free beach flying will be presented as well.
In short, these will be articles I wished someone had already written, for people like myself. But I did not find them online, despite vigorous googling before I departed for vacation.
Did I mention that I adopted a pet seagull during this trip?
Pictures I’ve taken on a meager iPhone will be culled, and the remaining usable and useful ones uploaded to Wikipedia, for illustrations on various relevant articles, continuing my series of Wiki Vacations (from here and there). Articles will then be revised to link to full-resolution images on Wikimedia, for what these mediocre iPhone pictures are worth.
