Greetings from Southwest Harbor

 

An easy Sunday morning glowing with glorious early light. It is low-tide in Southwest Harbor and the remaining waters shined like mirrors along the shores.

Lobster boats floated awaiting along with other water vessels moored in the harbor. Many skiffs tied at the docks waiting for their captains to awake.

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

  2. Beautiful shots of a gorgeous area. Hope you have one of those fantastic, quiet holidays – here’s to Maine, the way life should be.
