Pemaquid Point, Camden Hills State Park, ME

On Sept 20th, another foggy morning, Mike and I drove to the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse  in Bristol.  One of the most visited lighthouses because of it's beautiful rocky shore and crashing waves the fog made it that much more dramatic:

On the way there, we stopped to watch the fog roll in to a small harbor....

 And a fisherman busy preparing bait scraps for lobster traps

a walk behind the lighthouse and the landscape changes instantly!

So dramatic and eerily beautiful!

with the lighthouse at the top of the hill you can see the waves coming in on the right

A stop at Shaws for a brew and to watch the fishermen come in for the day.

Here this fisherman is handing a girl a bag so they can choose their crabs right out of the trap he has open there on the boat.

these fishermen are sorting the lobsters

music on the wharf 

Sep 21st we drove north a bit to Camden State Park in Camden.  We then hiked to the top of Mt. Megunticook and we hadn't done anything but pretty level hiking for a long time, whew!
looking up at Mike it was steep with lots of rocks and roots

but oh the views from the top!
