We've spent the last two days on Monhegan Island 10 miles off the coast of Maine. We were up early Saturday morning and on the road to catch the ferry in New Harbor. It's about a 2 hour drive down Route 1. The trip out was quite rough. Four foot swells made for some motion sickness bag use. I was fine, and Elenka was too, as long as she kept her eyes on the horizon. If she was to look down to search for something in her bag, not so much. We paid a return trip to the Monhegan House, where we spent a weekend in 2002 with J- tagging along. This time we took trips to the surf at Lobster Cove, up to Lighthouse Hill and to the deep green of the Cathedral Woods. It was a wonderful, stress-free weekend, like it always seems to be when you get an opportunity to sample island living. I took close to 400 photographs, some of which you'll see this week. Here's one looking out our second floor window towards the island church next door.
