Taking a break from the beauty of the Blue Ridge, I traveled to the amazing rocky coast of Maine for a few days. I was intrigued by the changing tides, and by the textures of the rocks.
A day trip to historic Monhegan Island twelve miles off the coast was the highpoint of the trip. Shingled cottages cling to the rocky cliffs.
The soaring cliffs along the eastern shore are the highest in Maine.
At low tide at Cape Small near Bath, the entire coast seems to moved inland by half a mile.
When you think of Maine, you usually don’t think of spectacular sunsets, but with all the islands and peninsulas, you can always get a western view.
