In the midst of beauty, she awakens.
Hermione is a replica of a frigate that ferried General LaFayette to the United States so that he could rejoin the Americans in their battle to gain freedom from the English.
Sailing along the coast of Maine she appeared as a ghost ship coming out of the fog.
Seen she was an impressive vessel with sails unfurled
and cannons firing as she came into port.
No place has ever captured my heart like the coast of Maine where exploring the islands is an ongoing treat.
No matter how many times I see the same sight, it never fails to thrill me.
With more than 3000 islands off the coast, there is no shortage of ones to explore.
A few of the uninhabited ones are protected by individuals or organizations desiring to keep their natural beauty.
Roughly 14 islands boast a year round population, seldom more than a few dozen though that number may increase dramatically come summer and the return of folks who enjoy a different lifestyle.
Maybe you’d like to find out for yourself what the coast of Maine is all about.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

Wherever I go there are some things that never fail to catch my attention. One is laundry.
No matter whether it hangs outside a window
on lines that reach from here to there
or dances in the sun
laundry has a way of telling its own story.
