Monhegan Part III

Moving on ...
 After our "moment" on the cliffs we backtracked ..to the village


Past the famous Wyeth "Red House"...



 and the weather worn "Monhegan House".
 To a well deserved break at the newly opened
"Monhegan Brewing Company" for a refreshing Trap Stacker Special Ale.

 Working our way back to the boat landing we had enough time to enjoy some of the delightful scenes on that beautiful autumn day..
 The soft afternoon sunlight and lengthening shadows playing on the buildings and landscape makes it quite obvious why Monhegan has inspired artists for so long.
 Soon our ride back to the mainland approached and our short visit to Monhegan was almost at an end.
Sitting at the stern on the Elizabeth Ann and watching Monhegan slowly disappear in her wake, we bid farewell to the "out to sea" island. And hoping it won't be too long before we can return to enjoy her charms once again.

  4. You have got the best of both worlds with the awesome ocean views and inland streams--I only wish my wife and I could live in that area, too late in life for us to move now. Thanks for sharing some scenic images
