Sunset Cruise

Last night we went out on a sunset cruise organized through the Monhegan Ferry Company.  We set off at 6:30 out of the harbor in a lovely boat filled with picnic tables- and a bar offering beer and wine.  We brought a picnic lunch from Green Bean Catering, which we got at Hedgerow (more on that later).  Not only was the cruise beautiful with an amazing sunset, but we counted it as educational too because of our guide who explained everything to us on the way

We passed by Southern Island that the Wyeth's own and stay on during the summer.  The white building above is a private museum housing many native american artifacts they found when they starting building there.  Technically, they would have had to have given them up to a museum so instead they built their own private museum (above), that they open only one day a year (a day they choose not to tell anyone).

Next, we cruised by the island that is now home to Project Puffin, an organization that's dedicated to preserving and researching birds, especially Puffins.

The sunsets in Maine are some of the most beautiful I've seen and we got to see a great one last night.  We pulled back into the harbor around 9pm after a very enjoyable cruise.  I would recommend the sunset cruise to anyone looking for something to do in Port Clyde.

P.S. Sorry about the awful photo quality, I stupidly left my Nikon at home so I'm relying only on my iphone these days.
