Best of Summer – A Story in Photographs

Is there anything more wonderful than summer in Maine? I think not.

In lieu of a lot of words today, I offer a collage of photos documenting the wonders of our gorgeous state taken in July and August, from the vantage point of beautiful Hancock County.

Foggy mornings usually give way to sunny afternoons

Local markets with fabulous produce are everywhere

A safe harbor

cool fundraisers

. . . and sightings of Maine crime writers in the wild. Last evening we were delighted to catch Paul Doiron speaking about his newest Mike Bowditch novel, ALMOST MIDNIGHT, at Brooklin’s Friend Memorial Library.

      I wondered if someone would ask that! We were not able to get over there. Brooksville is on the other side of the Blue Hill peninsula. Because it was a pea soup night, we opted not to drive over narrow, deer-dense roads in the heavy fog after seeing Paul at the Brooklin library.

    Love the photos. I am coming to Maine in September, probably no further up the coast than ? Portland. Were any of these taken in that area?
