It Was Cold Enough in Maine to Go Ice Skating on the Beach
Icy temperatures on the East Coast aren’t always bad. They can also lead to some fun winter activities in some of the most unlikely places.
According to the Boston Globe, a man found the perfect place to go ice skating on Sunday: Long Sands Beach, in York, Maine.
Peter and Sandra Lekousi recorded the man as the surf came to a frozen halt as it met the sandy beach. But along the shoreline was a perfectly smooth surface that made for a nice skate. Plus, there’s no worry of thin ice.
The recorded lowest temperature for York, Maine, was -9 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday, which only goes to show that this man must have been some sort of superhuman who is impervious to cold. Sandra Lekousi noted to the Globe that it was “too cold for [them] to be on the beach” that day.
She also told the Globe that the freezing temperatures made the ocean water into “slush.” Peter jokingly said on Facebook, “I keep trying to tell you all, every day is a beach day in Maine.”
