Yesterday, it was a cool but wonderful visit to Cliff Island. The temperature was in the high 50s to low 60s, with constant breeze. At one point in mid-afternoon a light mist began to fall, but no matter we were dressed for the early fall elements. I even brought a pair of gloves along. They say Cliff Island is an hour-and-a-half and a world away from the city, and I'd say that was pretty right on. Fall is here so the summer population is noticeably diminishing from about 200 in the summer to 60 year-round residents. I've posted a few shots to try and give the feeling of island life on Cliff. The remoteness gave the buildings, roads and residents the feeling of life closer to Monhegan than Peaks. I liked that feel. It was a feeling of being away from the world for a few hours, and I liked that too.
