Island Hopping

First, a note....to the question about the Reed Ideal.
I couldn't answer it, because there was no email address available.
So email me with your questions at ragrugs@crazyasaloom.com
And I will be happy to help if I can.

Now.......I took a LOT of pictures. It is hard to even decide which ones to post.
This is the boat ride, guys.
We took an hour boatride to Monhegan Island, which lies 10-12 miles off the coast. We left Port Clyde at 10am.

It was a stunning day on the water, and the lobster boats were out.

Every view was a picture. I couldn't even help myself.

I can see myself right about January, going through all these albums, longing for summer in Maine.

Guess you don't have to worry about your cats running away.

This shot makes me want to stay on Monhegan Island for a while.
Just to think, to ponder, to listen to the ocean hit the rocks.

I wonder what it would be like to live there for the summer.
Maybe just to imagine it, would be better than nothing at all.

I'd give an arm or a leg to live somewhere closer to water. Hubby and I were just talking about it a couple of days ago and I told him I would love to retire somewhere closer to water. He wondered if I meant a lake or the ocean. Hands down it would be the ocean.

Thanks for taking us along to Monhegan, a place I've never visited. The shot of that hotel really struck a chord with me, it looks to be a place I long to visit. What a lovely trip you had. I already know I'm not cut out for island living, unless it's accessible by a bridge year round, but now the summer, that's a different story! ~Lili

Well now, this is somewhere I've never been. What a beautiful island. Yes, I could live the summer in Maine. Easily.

Oh, thank you for the lovely tour of Maine. It IS such a magical place.
Love the boat pics. I bet the kids could have counted dozens of lobster trap bouys(sp) along the ride!

I'm a Mainer, and you remind me why I love this state so much!

BTW, it's not just the summers that are so great -- winter is terrific as well.
