A Postcard From Maine

Good Morning from Monhegan Island, Maine! I arrived last Sunday, and now I leave tomorrow. How can time go by so quickly? The trip has been enchanting, peaceful, inspiring and restorative. I've hiked, attended yoga classes, knitted, did a lot of writing, saw an art exhibit, and even got in a little reading. So this morning, I thought I would share just a few pictures. I've taken a ton. I won't bore you with too many :)
Yesterday I hiked the entire circumference of the island. The picture below is from that hike.
There are also interior trails that are absolutely enchanting.
Beauty is everywhere. I loved how someone took the time to make a little arrangement on the fungus that was growing out of the tree.
The church. 
 Morning light.
 A cat that accompanied me for a walk.
Monhegan is called the artist's island and art can be found everywhere. 
As I said,I have gotten in a little knitting. Nora Gaughan has been our instructor, and she is so inspiring. This piece is from her sampler class.
And then for a crazy picture of me. From yesterday's restorative yoga class.
Have a lovely day and I hope that you will find something to help restore your soul today.
