Sunset, Reflections, Lighthouses: Priceless!

Last week we visited Maine for a short vacation. We have been in love with the Maine coast for years, and thoroughly enjoy the many lighthouses along the coast.

We had not spent much time on the Blue Hill Peninsula, and had never been to Deer Isle, so that is where we chose to go for this getaway. We stayed in a lovely B&B, called the Pilgrim’s Inn, (right) in Deer Isle. It proved to be a wonderful choice.

Arriving after dark, we didn’t get a sense of location until we awoke the next morning to the lovely scene, below right, from the window of our room.

We did some hiking, visited nearby islands, and saw a wonderful sunset (pictured below) from just across the street from the B&B.

For me, the highlight was the sunset at Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, on Mt. Desert Island (not far from Bar Harbor). My favorite from that shoot will need a separate post to describe it.

  • Swans and New Photoshop Feature Walking along a canal a few days ago, there was a lovely swan gliding along, hoping for a handout.
