Elenka and I took our annual sojourn to Monhegan Island this past weekend. The island is about 12 nautical miles off the coast of Maine. The name Monhegan derives from Monchiggon, Algonquian for "out-to-sea island." We stayed at the Monhegan House, where we've stayed our last few visits. When we stepped on the island Saturday, we were greeted with a pretty good crop of fog and mist, but by 2 PM the sun broke through. We had an enjoyable afternoon heading up to Burnt Head via the road behind the hotel to view the cliffs and crashing sea and then on to the otherside of the island to the lighthouse and cemetery. Yesterday, we woke to what looked to be a day of heavy rain, but again by noon the sun was out for a pretty nice day. Enjoy our weekend, island get-a-way images here this week.
