We went to Maine this September – Down East – about a mile down a dirt road and over a small bridge, the Atlantic straight ahead. It was wonderful!
View from our Deck
We walked the sandy beach, clambered over stones with their glacier markings, loved the wrack weed, and wonderful sea drawings left when the tides recedes. We woke to the sound of lobster boats checking their traps.
Jordens Cove, Wrack Weed and Sand Drawings
We sketched and photographed, relaxed and just were. The skies were wonderful.
And then there was fog. Islands came and went, a misty magic descended on the world
However, we were right where hurricane Lee/Tropical Storm was expected to hit. Not as bad as it could have been but still lots and lots of rain and wind – main damage trees down!. The ocean turned a peachy tan color .
We had a cozy cottage, good food and wine, had our art/photography supplies, so we were happy. But the plan had been to work outside most of the time.
Plan B… enjoy the adventure!
We did get a day at Quoddy Head to sketch and one down to Schoodic to see crazy waves.
Quoddy Head Point and Waves at Scoodic
Between rainy spells we could get through the woods, down steps the sandy cove to work.
The last evening skies began to clear and in the morning the view from our window was beautiful.
Things Clear up as we leave
We woke up to the sound of chain saws clearing the road so we could get out. We had breakfast, walked on the beach, then headed south.
We also got to visit friends and family and a visit to the Farnsworth! So now home and time to work with my sketches, photographs, and memories!!!
