Beautiful Place by the Sea or Coastal Lagoon?

by

For as long as I have been here, I’ve thought that Ogunquit meant Beautiful Place by the Sea…and so does everyone else I know!! So much to our surprise when the Family Scavenger Hunt included the question “What does Ogunquit mean” we got an answer that indicated “Coastal Lagoon”. Now where did that come from? After some research, the truth depends on which Indian tribe you  ask- The Abenaki indicate Beautiful Place by the Sea and the Naddick say “Coastal Lagoon”. So, there’s your new trivial question that few will get right! Whichever, Ogunquit is a Beautiful Place by the Sea with a Coastal Lagoon! Got anymore stumpers that I don’t know about???
