Janice and I hiked up to the Waterfall Bridge in Acadia National Park during a heavy rain. We knew the water would be flowing heavily, but still we were amazed by just how much water runs off the mountains of Mount Desert Island during a storm. On our walk long the carriage roads starting at the Parkman Mountain parking area, every culvert, spout, and normally dry stream was gushing water.
The Algerine Coast stretches from Pretty Marsh to the Seal Cove town dock. Nobody seems to know the true origin of the name of this section of shore on the western side of Mount Desert Island in Maine. The folklore mentions Algeria, pirates, gold, and a man named Smith who came came from France in the early 19th century, but the truth remains a mystery. Many thanks to my friend Linda and
Waters Edge is a private estate on Sargeant Drive in Northeast Harbor, Maine. It has lovely gardens and expansive views across Somes Sound to the mountains of Acadia National Park. Each year the W. P. Stewart family opens this fabulous property for a spring garden tour to support a local nonprofit organization. This year the host and beneficiary of the event was the Harbor House Community
Today I went on a Sunset Cruise Safari with photographer Howie Motenko on a 28-foot ‘lobster yacht’ piloted by his sweet wife Brenda. Howie gave me some great tips for shooting on the water and Brenda placed the boat in optimal locations for getting the best shots. At just $75 per person for a three-hour trip, this is a great deal that I highly recommend for photographers at all levels.
