The water temperature in Maine is cold – just the way it should be during the height of summer!
After a very early morning and several strenuous hikes, we decided to chill out (literally and figuratively) at Sand Beach in Acadia National Park. The ocean temperature came in at a crisp 59F, which was a welcome relief to the 75F+ lake temps we’ve been getting out at L1!
I got in a quick 1/3 mile and was amazed at how much more buoyant one is in the salt water. It’s a great contrast to the OWC swim site, so definitely check it out if you’re ever in the area!
