ROUGH SEAS AND LOW TIDE
|WELL'S BEACH, ME|

|Mr and Mrs|
On my way back to Bethlehem (Pennsylvania) from the Island (Maine) the other day I stopped in Wells, Maine for something to eat and a break. I went down on the waterfront, parked in the lot overlooking the beach from a higher elevation. I was admiring the wave action when I spied what looked like a goose way down by the edge of the water. Now, I have always thought that geese were not salt water birds. I used my telephoto lens and although the day was rainy and overcast and foggy I managed to get a few decent shots so I could look in my bird guide book after I returned home. Evidently these were sea geese or Brants.

Before getting to Wells, though, I decided to stop in Searsport to do some photographing of the old sea captain houses along Route one. I drive through Searsport everytime I return from Maine but don't take the time out of an almost 12 hour trip to stop. When I return in May the tourist traffic will have begun and there will be bumper to bumper crawling along cars to contend with. So, it seemed like I should stop even though the day was raining and foggy and overcast.
|Some of the older houses have been restored and updated while others have kept their charm and made into Inns.|

Beautiful stained glass windows on all sides of this old congregational church. So beautiful but I couldn't get sharp images of them so I let it go for another day.
Several Marine Museums in the area.
United Methodist church on one side of Route one and the Penobscot Marine museum on the other.

I arrived home late due to my ramblings on the way but I really enjoyed looking at my photos as I uploaded them from my camera!
Hope you have enjoyed them also.
