In late August last year, Monhegan experienced a few large storms. These were taken shortly after one of them.
This picture was taken at Pebble Beach, an area that encompasses most of Seal Ledges, and is a favorite spot for family picnics and short dips in the sea.
This wonderfully defined sunset was taken just as the sun was falling out of sight off the Maine shoreline.
Besides the breathtaking views and restful setting, Monhegan has always lent itself to family activities and outings that are far removed from a television and remote control. Some favorites in our family have been reading, baking cookies, and picking blackberries as these cousins did this past summer.
Taken from our Partridge cottage porch, this typical sight just before nightfall never fails to awaken your inner love for nature and all the wonders she has to share.
The view of Monhegan’s lighthouse is as equally striking from land as it is from sea. This was taken on a trip back from White Head, a cliff that’s trail winds around and behind the island’s lighthouse.
Did you know that in the last presidential elections Monhegan residents favored Barack Obama by a landslide, with 61 votes cast for Obama versus 11 for McCain. If that democratic trend continues in tomorrow’s legislative elections, the majority of the island unfortunately may end up with little to celebrate, as most polls predict that Republicans will at least win a majority in the House.
