Today was a busy day for me. My cousin Terry and her husband Frank are on the island celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary, and this morning we got together for a walk along the carriage roads. It was great to see them. It’s literally been years! We parted ways in Bar Harbor – and I grabbed some lunch and headed back to the village green to catch the shuttle to the campground. My timing was off so instead of waiting almost an hour for the next shuttle to the campground, I hopped on the Sand Beach shuttle, got off near Thunder Hole and walked along the cliffs. It was a beautiful day, and there was a nice breeze. I found a spot to relax, take some photos and I even laid down on the rocks for a short “nap” with the sound of the waves lulling me into a “light” sleep.
No tripod with me today since I was hopping shuttles and hiking. I just enjoyed the waves crashing on the rocks as the tide was coming in and captured some quick photos.
On my way back to the campground, I walk through a beautiful Ash forest and the Flat-topped Aster (Doellingeria umbellata) were flowering in drifts under the canopy. Not as focused as I would like without my tripod, but my goal was to just capture the scene. It was magical.
