Mid-Coast Maine May 17 through 21

This was the most organized, vigorous, informative and enjoyable workshop I have attended. The leaders, Bob Ring and Don Toothaker, made a point to emphasize that our story should reflect our discovery of the key features of Mid-coast Maine.. Their thorough preparation included a visit to a vintage typical General Store and a home that had pieces of early Coastal Maine. We were introduced to some of the best restaurants in the area serving lobster for each meal of the day. By the way, on my return home, I read an article about iconic eating places in each state. In Maine it is RED’S EATS , where we had lunch on the second day. Great lobster.

I was all primed to photograph osprey, as promised by the workshop. Not a one showed up but there were plenty of Ring-billed Gulls. The largest I have ever seen, fishing where osprey were expected.

The Pemaquid and Marshall Point Lighthouses offered a unique view of mid-coast Maine and great photo ops.

This was a special trip. I have a few photos of my visit that I hope you enjoy.
