Coastal Maine is not what I pictured in my head.
But it is wonderful.
The part of Maine I am in is called St. George. St. George is composed of multiple villages, including Port Clyde and Tenants Harbor. I also visited the slightly larger artsy town of Rockland.
The small towns and their people are quirky.
I love this public art in the center of Tenants Harbor. It is St. George and the Dragon of course.
Besides humorous public art, you can also find famous art such as the EAT sign by Robert Indiana atop the Farnsworth Art Museum.
Many local businesses decorate with the lobster buoys which are a huge part of the history and culture here.
It rains some.
But even with the grey skies, the water is beautiful (especially if you make the photo black and white).
And when the sun shines…
…. you just want to soak in the warmth and the gorgeous views all day.
I absolutely love the cedar shingles on nearly every home.
Lighthouses are pretty and much more interesting than they sound.
Everything is green, and there are so many flowers.
And delicious fresh blueberries too.
I learned that sailing a boat is hard work.
I just wanted to sit back and enjoy the view!
Kayaking is my favorite way to be on the water.

Have you been to this part of Maine? Does it remind you of anywhere else in the world?
