Wanderer – Onward to Monhegan Island!

090618portclyde05From Portland, Maine, we traveled up the coast two hours to catch a ferry to our next destination, Monhegan Island.  Approximately 10 miles off the mainland, Monhegan Island has no paved roads and with 12 miles of hiking trails, it makes for a perfect destination to explore.

The ferry ride itself was an hour long, and with it going out over open ocean, created an opportunity to photograph wildlife I’ve never encountered.  I ended up seeing two species of bird I’ve never seen before, a Laughing Gull and Northern Gannet.  The ocean was a bit rough and made for a challenging photo shoot.

They weren’t the only animals we saw either.  I hope you enjoy the attached gallery (click photos to enlarge), and there will be plenty more photos from Monhegan Island over the coming days.
