I remember when we were kids, we would all pile in the car and take a Sunday Drive, just to see what we might see. This weekend was absolutely gorgeous as spring has come to Maine about 3 weeks early (my forsythia shrub is already turning bright yellow!) so Thom and I took a road trip to Bar Harbor on Saturday just for the fun of it. Here are some of the stops we made along the way:
In Stockton Springs there is a graveyard with a stone that has always intrigued me since I came across it many years ago. The memorial for a Captain Albert Partridge that has the outlines of continents carved in a large granite globe. My thinking is the named locations were regular ports for the Captain. If anyone has more on this story I’d welcome your comments.
No day trip to the coast is complete without a photo of a lighthouse, so here’s a shot of Bass Harbor Headlight:
We also took a ride around some of the beautiful homes in Northeast Harbor, but what really caught my eye was the greening of the moss covered stones with sunlight dappled through the trees. Surely spring is really here to stay!
