Monhegan Island

Finally got around to posting our Monhegan Island pics from our trip back in July.  Highlights included high cliffs, fairy houses in the cathedral like woods, Artist’s at work, Poets and stunning hikes.  You can visit for the day, but we found it was worth a longer stay.  For more details of the island visit the Monhegan Maine wikipedia page.  A highlight for me was viewing minky whales from the shore. We were lucky to have beautiful sunny weather most of the time, but found it was great when foggy as well.  Below is a picture of the amazing rock pilings that can be found near an old shipwreck:

If you go you may even have the opportunity to purchase a handmade buck toothed clam from local kids.  I think it is the only souvernir that we purchased as there are very few stores.
