Beautiful Maine Sunrise

IMG_2258This was the view from our Maine deck this morning when I arose early to enjoy the dawn chorus.  I was looking out over a passage called “The Thread of Life” which allows boat traffic to pass from the Boothbay Region to Pemaquid Point.  With the summer solstice just a day or two away, this is the furthest north the sun rises.  In mid-winter it rises just south of Monhegan Island.  Our dawn chorus today began with the Northern Parula’s buzzy notes climbing the scale, followed by a Yellow-rumped Warbler right above my head in a Wild Cherry tree.  Ah, the fresh clean air of a tension-draining new day in Maine!

    I will never forget the first morning at your Maine house, I got up around 4am to use the bathroom. Came out of the hallway and looked out the window … to see this very view. I could not believe it. How beautiful. That view makes one feel lucky to be alive. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    You’ve whet my appetite for our time next month on Lake Winnipesauke, NH. Natural sights like this fill your soul with all good things!
    BTW, I like the variety of topics on your blog.

    Spectacular. Sometimes it’s good to be reminded what a beautiful world this ol’ Terra is.

    Thanks so much!
