Maine Vacation: Wells Beach: Part 2

For this month of Inspired by Life Blog I am sharing the second part of Wells Beach shares a few more of the bay and harbor along with a short drive to the Island.    If you have not read the other blogs, Wells Beach, Maine is a quaint coastal town that “in season” is more busy than I expected.  Maine is so different from South Florida.  The houses are built differently, mainly with wood, as opposed to concrete in South Florida.  I loved the wrap around balconies.  We were heading to the harbor mouth but came to a dead end along the way.

Below are some additional images of the bay area that we found by taking a drive down a little side street.

I loved the peacefulness of the bay area.  Again we had fog and it gave an eerie feeling to it.

The reflections that I found in the water really captured my attention.  The serenity of this image gained me the cover image of a group I am in.

I watched these guys pack up their boat and head out on their fishing trip.

Across the bay is the stillness of the island.

In the background is the island homes.  This small strip of island is full of beautiful coastal homes .  The bay and marsh area separate them from the mainland.  There is a narrow road that crosses the bay area to this group of houses.

Bouys were a common sight along this whole coastal area.

This man appeared to be heading out fishing on an interesting looking contraption.

Live lobsters for anyone.  This was not a stopping point for us but I did love seeing the boat right outside the restaurant.

We took at drive across the marsh to the island.

Coming from South Florida, where all the overhead lines are actually underground, I was taken aback a bit with the powerline pollution until someone explained to me that it is hard to run cables underground due to the rocky soil.

and just a quick snapshot of some numbers that caught my eye.

Next stop Portland, and what one had hoped was whale watching.  On our drive we were able to see the beginnings of the fall changes.
