The Photo Journalism Continues- Monhegan Island

Yesterday, I posted some pictures of my journey to NYC in hopes that I’d make up for the huge lag in written posts that I’ve made this summer. Today, I’m taking you on a virtual tour of Monhegan Island and Midcoast Maine.

I bid on the ferry ride and stay at the “Trailing Yew” inn through the Maine Women’s Lobby auction. MWL is doing amazing things to support women and families in Maine and I thank them!

First stop: Mt. Batte in Camden. Think… Down to the Sea With Mr. McGee.

My cairn from the rocky mountain top at the end of a lovely hike. My husband and I were pleased to find wild blueberries nestled amongst the rocks and nibbled just like SAl. Or were they tremendous mouthfuls like Little Bear?!?

In Rockland… a fabulous dinner at FOG Bar and Cafe. BBQ Tofu topped with tempura pickle strips on a bed of cilantro pesto cauliflower.

Followed by breakfast at the Atlantic Baking Company…

The view from our room at The Trailing Yew. Fabulous food, a great group of artist visitors, and oil lamps. So fun!

The island was all abloom with flowers– the air full of sea roses and balsam scent. These climbing roses caught my eye.

Me on “Pebble Beach.” The “pebbles” were more like boulders or as we said, dinosaur eggs.

So majestic and magical! We hiked the trails all around the island and let me tell you… it was some strenuous hiking.

A wonderful sunset on a VERY hot day. Good-by Monhegan. We’ll be back!

  1. Dear Anna This is a nice spread. Congratulations. Mom and I visited Sam on Thurs. and Fri. and returned on Sat. He is much improved but ia atill a long way from being free of the virus that he is suffering from. There is no way of knowing whether he will ever be. His improvement is slow. His speecg is much better but the spastic flailing of his legs continues. Actually he called u this AM and told us he had two good night”s sleep which is a good sign because the flailing of his legs continued at night and this is a sign of further improvement. Love Dad

      1. I appreciate that… I’ll fill you in later, but just got my schedule last week. That’s all I’m going to say about that. This year’s all about inner peace:) I enjoy the kids. They’re fun.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
