Good Morning Bar Harbor

Bah Habah if you are so inclined to say it that way.  Bar Harbor, Maine a town on Mount Desert Island in Maine is where it is said that you can see the sun rise first in all of the United States.  I was going to go down to the harbor to take a sunrise photo anyway – the other best option was from the top of Cadillac Mountain but I knew my chances of actually getting there and getting a spot were better at the harbor – the first sunrise bit just gave me the will to get up so very early.

It was worth getting up early for and a great start for my return to Maine series.  Picking up where I left off last… again.

Scenic Maine

This photo was taken looking away from the Marshall Point Lighthouse.  I don’t know if those houses that you can just see snuggled in the trees were private homes or were connected with the lighthouse but regardless, can you imagine having all of this as your everyday view?

Return to Maine – Around the Portland Head Lighthouse

Just a few shots from around the lighthouse and another of the lighthouse itself as the fog and rain came in.  I can only imagine how it looks now with snow being in the area as compared to when we were there in September.

Old Orchard Beach in Maine

I had fun here! It is a popular area with a sandy beach; I was able to get in the water (up to my ankles and the water wasn’t too chilly) and the weather was perfect for me to get some shots I’ve always wanted to try.

I saw the sign…

And I think it said no diving but it’s a bit hard to read.  Sunrise from a pier in Key West taken in 2013.  I really could use some warm ocean time right now!  I want to get away I want to fly away yeah yeah yeah!  Those are your two ear worms for the weekend.  Have a good one everybody.

PS.  You still can vote in the flower poll I posted yesterday. C’mon! Let your choice be heard 😉

Here comes the sun…

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, and I say it’s alright… Here Comes The Sun by The Beatles

And yes it was alright.  The sun seemed to rise very quickly over South Beach while we were there or perhaps because I was still not feeling 100% yet I just wasn’t able to greet it as soon as I wanted to.  After all, what with the long hike through the hotel and then out the back to leg it some more to even reach the shoreline – it was a hike!  But it was worth it for me and the other early risers like this fellow who went right out into the ocean to greet the sun.
