Once past the hotel swimming pool and onto the beach, there was more to behold as the moon slowly said farewell to us and to the rising sun.
I grew up around rivers and lakes which while nice never enthralled me. When I finally saw an ocean I was overcome with the beauty and enormity of it all. Staring off into the horizon where the sky kisses the water; that was and still is a beautiful scene to me. As much as I love swimming and splashing in the ocean, I can be quite content just sitting there listening to the sounds of the waves; sunrise before the masses descend upon the sand is the best. Of course when it’s a crowded beach there are a lot of sounds that do not fall under the header of ‘peaceful’ but such is humanity and a beach on a warm sunny day.
So whenever I can, I try to visit an ocean and feel renewed. Plus fresh seafood is definitely a major bonus. Cannot beat that!
But not quite back. I am missing the ocean, sand, sun and almost 90 degree heat; the humidity was hair frizz city high as well but who cared! If you follow me on IG then you know where we were and if not why not? 🙂 Will show and tell more next week but now it’s time to fire up the grill to welcome the unofficial start of summer and to give thanks on this Memorial Day weekend for those who gave their all for us.
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.
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?
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.
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.
How did she get in here? 😉
