Two days without rain saw me running out after 8hrs on the road and taking sometime to hike!

The quarry is a good hike (1 mile is round trip) and can be more – it was raining on and off – if you’re a rock hound, and want to see the MASSIVE amounts of granite that this place produced it’s a must see while in the Stonington/Deer Isle area.

The Edgar Tennis Preserve is a great hike – I headed for the furthest of trails (there are others and I’ll have to go back another time).  There is a pink granite beach, an old cemetery, and the trails are knotted with tree roots, the ground worn away by many feet and their passage to these wonderful little spots.  This is really a must see – best at low tide, I went at high tide, due to work – but will go again at low tide the granite beaches are GREAT!
