The beauty of Maine

Here it is, August 2nd and I have hardly shown my pictures. We returned home on Saturday the 22nd and boom, we have been trying to catch up since. We had a great time on vacation, so many good memories, and I brought back tons of inspiration. This picture is the beauty of Acadia.

I woke up at 4:15 one morning and thought I should see if there is a sunrise. No filters, this is actual.  It was breathtaking.

The moon and something. Could it be the International Space Station??

The shine on the water is fantastic.

We took a scenic nature boat ride and started out with mallard ducks. Not so different from Indiana.

I loved this schooner raising the sails to take off. 

Can you tell I am quite taken with the sun? We had so much fog for the first three days here and seeing the sun was a treat..

This is a beautiful picture!

Egg Island Lighthouse. No one except the Coast Guard is allowed on this island. Beside the little building on the right is a solar panel. The seabirds and seals are the real owners of the island.

The sea lions rest and bask in the sun during low tide and swim and eat at high tide. They have to keep their body fat up because the water at its highest is 55 degrees.

Our boat threw a fish in the water to get the eagle to come down and I was just clicking my camera hoping to get one good shot. You don’t get to see an eagle like this but once in a lifetime.

The wings in flight are so impressive. It will end up in a painting.

A close up, love the ripple effect on the water. I have so much more to show, along with the treasures I brought with me. Please stop back again.
