I just returned home from my first trip to Monhegan! We were greeted by an overcast day but by evening the sun joined us for a house warming party along with music in the garden. The island’s picturesque landscape is accented with weathered shingled houses tucked into the wooded rocky coastline. So many wonderful people and vistas I truly felt at home having grown up on the coastline in southern Maine. I was able to get in a little painting on Monday but the rain cut the day short so I set the alarm and got up early my last day. To my surprise the morning was crystal clear. The island captured my heart from the moment I stepped off the boat and I am already planning for my next trip back. During my 4 day stay I captured over 400 photographs. Widdling it down to a little “show & tell” sampler was very difficult!
