I never tire of what I see of Maine from the water, and today I paid special attention knowing that it’s the last boat outing of the season.
The destination is North Haven, one of the more than 3,000 islands off the coast and one of the 15 or so that can still claim a year round population.
North Haven has the feeling of having been there for a very long time. The post office, the American Legion hall, the church have seen generations come and go.
The permanent population is less than 400, but in the summer that number swells considerably with the return of families who’ve had seasonal homes on North Haven for years. Getting there can be done only by boat or ferry, and if you take the ferry you don’t want to miss the last one.
Leaving the island behind and heading back to Rockport Harbor, I take it all in.
