    We so agree…. We stumbled across Perkins Cove, Marginal Way & Ogunquit, while spending a rainy honeymoon in York. We have continued to return, even renting a house for a week before the tourist season opened 3 yrs back. We are in love with the surroundings…especially the little private Beaches that appear while the tide is out along Marginal Way… We will return every chance we get!!
