Since we are supposed to get rain for the next few days – I decided that I was skipping the gym and hitting the sunset beat.
There are tons of nooks and crannies here in Deer Isle and Stonington. I’m having fun seeking them out and I know I haven’t even scratched the surface.
There are various beaches here on the Island, and learning just where the sun sets and rises, is an every changing curve – getting to know the island while driving for work has its advantages
A picture is worth 1000 words, and sometimes, words fail you – so the pictures shall speak.
One of the best parts of working this home care job, is the places I go and things I see. Typically, its go, go, go. But I can get out of the car, snap 10 pictures in under five minutes. I just have to drive fast to make up for the time, right? (I’m joking!)
These are the same pictures, one is HDR’ed slightly more than the other – its an old rushed out truck sitting somewhere around Harbour Side, Me. On these wicked twisty, turn roads.
I love how the ice makes jigsaw puzzle like patterns on the edge of the water!

This is what happens during laundry time – I get bored and take pictures of things….. name that object!
There is beauty in everything – and in everything there is beauty.
I drove this area last year, but this lovely motorcycle, I had never seen (more than likely covered by snow). This year, during one of the many thaws, I spotted it on my way home and snagged a few pictures. Interesting how the rust bleeds through the paint – they sure don’t make em like they used too!
The last time I was in Clayton, NM I enjoyed quick lunches and the such at the Eklund. This time I got to stay there. My sister-in-law, Vic was rather taken w/the few pictures I took of the place. So, this time around, I took more.
The building was built in the last 1800s. It’s been rather well upkept, considering you go through out the country and see abandoned places just like this all along the drive.
There are some great details in the old place. The lighting isn’t great, its very yellow. But I worked out some of the details on post.
All along, I thought it was a tin ceiling, but it isn’t. It is all plaster. Which, makes it all more facinating and unique.
If anyone knows me, they know I love door knobs! The wood etching on the fireplace is very cool, and looked better in Black and White.
Again, the decorations/details on the ceiling are all plaster.
The fireplace is all marble. There are two in the dining room and one in the saloon (which I didn’t get to photograph, maybe next time!)
As I was driving down the 54, to my right it was as dark as night and to my left, completely sunny. And that produced a great rainbow – even with my 18 lens I couldn’t get the whole rainbow! (I did with my phone)
And that was my view to the front. And my long drive is finally over. For another 10 weeks.
