A Maine writer & artist on sabbatical in England
Lovely pictures and words Sarah. I love the island that is hidden by the fog--Maquoit seems to be a peaceful place.BestTracy :)
So beautiful and such nice descriptive words that paint a wonderful picture.
Your few lines of poetry and pictures speak volumes of your beautiful setting. I just want to hop on that bike!
So beautiful, Sarah! It's always sad to see autumn's glory fading away.
So evocative Sarah. I could imagine being in each setting. I was particularly 'taken' by the last photograph.
The contrast between the sea and the inland foliage is amazing. Autumn's sweetness dissolves ME! :-)Greetings from London.
Dear Sarah, Such beautiful images and their essence captured with your pithy and poetic prose. Maquoit Bay, seemingly all to yourself, what more could one wish for as Autumn quietly makes way for the drama of Winter.
I love that last line and pic. You've captured perfectly the idea that seasons are meant to be savored, each one in its own way.
this is pure poetry, sarah. your words capture the transition of the seasons and the emotions that go along with that......and the images, as always, are such eye candy. especially the first one, sigh.....
A sad time of year for me. Pitch black at 5 pm, cold and bare outside. Not very inspiring.
Dulling pastures and all, it is still beautiful.
Oh, I love those fall colors and the islands in the fog. Gorgeous, as is that line, 'Let us ride one last time to the ocean.' It's so cool that we have the East and West Coast tides on our blogs today. :D
amazing blog and amazing pictures!really I like a lot!you're so talented!grt from Spain
Ahh, Maine. What is there about standing at the coast, looking into the great expanse of water, water, water, with the beautiful landscape behind? It's about possibility. Beautifully open, thank you.
All, it’s interesting how some of you commented on the joy of autumn and others noted the sorrow of it fading. I felt both emotions. It’s a bittersweet time of year. Biking to Maquoit is a six-mile loop from my house, passing by sea and farms. I do it at least weekly from April through October. Now it’s time to park my bike in the shed. November is my least favorite time in Maine because hunting season makes it unsafe to hike in the woods. Still, the sun is shining on this holiday weekend and we will walk on the coast or in the woods near town wearing bright orange.Tricia, both coasts are connected in the cybertide, how fun!Bicocacolors, gracias and welcome to my blog!Ruth, the sea is gloriously open and uncluttered.
Sarah! I just read your comment. I had no idea you had lost the lovely Stella. I am so sorry. She was a beautiful dog and I know she had been through many family adventures with you. You are in my thoughts today.
Pamela, thank you. I blogged about Stella here. I think you may have been off in the mountains then.
I find those last two lines rather unbearably, poignantly true! But at least in Maine's case the dullness will be replaced by all of the brilliant whites and blues of winter.
This is really nice. You are a talented poet!
This past Thursday I flew from Boston to Maine (7,000 ft) and just soaked in the beauty. Whew! Words can't express how magnificent this country is. Top pics, Sarah.
Dulling toward winter--I was writing about that today. Especially loved the black and white.
Thanks for these lovely photos and words! Love the trees and fields tinged with the color of withered leaves of late fall in the 6th and 7th photos !! Our autumn is leaving too. I wish it could stay here much longer!!
Just catching up after our Irish vacation. The sea looks so tranquil, even thoughtful here. Not at all like the angry tides and storms we saw hitting the west coast of the Emerald Isle.
I still miss seeing the fall colors. Beautiful pictures and poetry. Also, I'm impressed you bike 6 miles weekly during the good months. ;)
I needed this today, one last ride to the ocean. Our days are considerably shorter now and today was one of those days when I thought--did we even have any daylight?Thank you for sharing this beautiful outing with us!
So beautiful . I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
Dear Sarah what is the only flower in the world that actually BLOOMS underneath the Atlantic tides?My name is Paul retired sea captain, brunswick and go to Maquoit year round for the last 50 years. Your photos have that nice quaility in that theyEVOKE so well. They do not preach.

All, thank you!Captain Paul, welcome to my blog and thanks for your praise! Yes, it’s a little nippy for a bike ride but not bad for a brisk walk.
