I have only ever been to Monhegan in June. While I would like to go some other time of year, there is just so much to love about June on the island.
There are the incredible blues of sea and sky.
The riotous blooming of flowers everywhere!
The quaint beautiful scenes around every bend.
The weather-beaten shingle buildings, which to my mind are the perfect shade of gray. (We stayed in the square cottage to the right, in the photo looking down on the cluster of houses. Mom and I shared a room which was half the second floor, J had a smaller room on the third floor. It is a perfect spot, right in the center of the island.)
The fun of beach combing in the morning when the tide is low. (That little speck is J finding all the blue sea glass.)
there are beautiful amazing views from every hill top, every curve of the road.
Is it any wonder I can’t keep from going back whenever anyone suggests it or is willing to go with me????
Here are a few phone shots of our view from the cottage
And one of the view Friday morning when I went up to the Inn to get early coffee.
We had a wonderful time, although I was heartily sick of hills by the time we left! I just never get sick of the beauty that is everywhere, and we were SO lucky with the weather. I have been there when it down poured the whole time, and this was better. 🙂 I did do a bit of knitting when we sat on the porch, and in the evening after supper – finished up one baby hat and started another. But that is another tale.
