Springtime at Land’s End in Harpswell, Maine

1. Land's End-kab Land’s End, June 16, 2015

With fall coming on in full force, it’s almost hard to remember the beauty of Maine in June, when the lupine were in bloom and birds were nesting and hatching their young. Gus and I took a drive one evening down to Land’s End in Harpswell. Little did we know then that we would soon be living in that town! This is one of my favorite drives to take down Route 24 from Brunswick as you cross over Orr’s island to Bailey Island and end at the sea.

Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
