Pemaquid is one great place and you have captured the essence of it perfectly. It may have been gray and rainy while you were there, but this is what if "FEELS" like to be sitting on those rocks and watching the mighty ocean. I can almost smell the lobster cooking...and those yummy blueberry pancakes. #3448076

It was a dark and foggy morning. Sadly, this was my recollection of the Maine coast during my Oct trip to New England. I had to work this image hard, just to bring out some colors. This is the lighthouse that's on the back of the Maine quarter. Added in the light beam with Mystical Lights.
