BY: DOROTHY STEPHENSON Legend says the name Ogunquit (pronounced “a-gun-quit”) is translated from the Abenaki Indians to mean “beautiful place by the sea.” For a girl from Virginia who is used to the southern beaches with rolling sand dunes, the rocky, dramatic, and sometimes jagged cliffs of the Ogunquit coastline didn’t disappoint.
BY: DOROTHY STEPHENSON When I was a kid, I never wanted to spend the night at my friend’s house. I would always come up with an excuse for my friends to stay at my house, so I didn’t have to go to theirs. I didn’t feel comfortable outside my home. Nor did I feel comfortable being alone. In fact, I was slightly terrified to be left by myself.
