The first weekend in March felt more like May — full sun both Satuarday and Sunday and temps in the 50s. We headed off to one of our favorite day hikes — the Morse Mountain Preserve in Phippsburg, a 40-minute drive from Coveside. It’s a 2-mile hike (each way) with a climb up Morse “Mountain” (more a large hill) to a beautiful beach, occupied by no one other than other folks who made the hike. A fine walk in any season.
The effects of the recent Nor’easter were evident along the trail — many downed trees and other wind damage.
