The Last Summer Weekend, Part 3 of 3: Horsehead Island

And the last summer weekend blog posts come to an end with a wonderful trip to Horsehead Island in East Penobscot bay, owned by our family friends. It's a sweet little island with a beautiful cabin, and we had an amazing lunch prepared by our friends' amazing chefs (who are opening a restaurant in Portland, Oregon next summer!). We took a hike around the island where we were blessed with 360 degree views of the bay, and even hung out with a seal who was sunning himself on the dock.

This summer was magical. I'm sad that it's was a gift. I'm interested to see what this school year holds. I'm back at Colby, and ready to explore central Maine. Stay tuned.

Even the outhouse was beautiful!

  1. Did you snap any pictures of the seal? It would be great to see some of those!
