Pratt's Brook Park - A Gem in Yarmouth

Pratt's Brook Park - A Gem in Yarmouth

 

Last week, my team of canine hikers scouted out yet another fantastic locale for woods walking, stream swimming and generalized off-leash adventure!  They give “two paws way UP” to Pratt’s Brook Park in Yarmouth!

 

Located off North Road as you head away from Route One towards Cumberland, this 220-acre tract of preserved land offers over seven miles of walking trails.  The routes are well-marked and there are trail maps and a kiosk with information at the trail head.  The parking area is located well off the main road and has plenty of parking for up to 30 cars.  On the Friday afternoon that we enjoyed the park, we were the only car in the lot.

Disc Golfing: Family, friendly, fun!

Disc Golfing: Family, friendly, fun!

If you are looking for something to do outside this summer with your family, make sure you check out Pleasant Hill Disc Golf in Scarborough. "What is disc golf?", you ask? Disc golf is golf, but with discs! It's easy to learn and very affordable. They are independently owned and operated. Their 18-hole, 40 acre course, which is a former traditional ball golf course has plenty of wide opened throwing areas [perfect for those of use that may not have the best aim ;)], as well as some fun water hazards! They welcome all playing levels, from beginner to pro as well as dogs! Yes, that's right, you can bring your fur baby! But of course, only well-behaved, socialized, and non-aggressive dogs are allowed and you must pick up all poops. ;)

They are opened 7 days a week from 9:00AM to 8:00PM.

Have You Ever Been Kiteboarding?

Have You Ever Been Kiteboarding?

Today as I was doing some "work" AKA blogging from Pine Point Beach in Scarborough I thoroughly enjoyed watching a couple of the kiteboarders that were cruising up and down the beachy coast. They were flying! Literally, at times! I realized that kiteboarding [I was calling it wind surfing until a friend corrected me] was one of those extreme sports that I will most likely never try... I'd panic, let go and jump off the board before I started flying through the air, but not that guy! It was FUN to watch!

I did a little research and found MASSkiting, which is New England's premiere kiteboarding resource. It definitely is NOT a beginners sport, so make sure you do your research before you start kiteboarding up & down the Eastern seaboard! ;)

L.L.Bean and Y Partner for Record Breaking 4th of July 10K

Proceeds Support Financial Assistance for Youth & Family Programs at Y

Freeport – The work is hard but the payoff is powerful. For L.L.Bean and the Casco Bay Y, this July 4th will mark the 10th year of partnership in presenting the L.L.Bean 4th of July 10K and Family Fun Run/Walk, with all event proceeds benefiting the Y’s financial assistance program. In the past nine years, more than $110,000 has been raised for the Y through this event. Keeping up the tradition of growth during this time, event organizers expect another record breaking year in participation and fundraising – setting the goals of 1,500 runners and $30,000 donated.

The 34th running of this event is poised for record setting turn-out this year. Last year’s race saw nearly 1,200 runners in the 10K, the largest turn-out in the race’s history. This year, the race is well ahead of last year’s pre-registration and on track to meet its 1,500 runner goal by the 4th.
