Monhegan is an island about 12 nautical miles (22 km) off the coast of Maine. We've ventured out there on three occasions, staying once at the Whispering Yew, and another time the Monhegan House was our base of operations. This last time we took the boat from New Harbor for a day trip. Each time, photography and painting were in our plans for the trip. An excursion to the island, is a adventure back in time. Rain or shine, you're never disappointed on Monhegan.
