Day 28 – Magnificent Maine Coast

Day 28 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

George’s House in Prouts Neck, Maine

After a breakfast of blueberry pancakes, courtesy of George, George and I took a 1.5 mile walk around the neck that led us over the rocks, along the beach, and on a boardwalk through a bird sanctuary.  The rocks we passed inspired Winslow Homer who owned a nearby home and studio in the late 1800’s to paint The Canon.  It is said that during high tide, the water sprays from the rocks like a canon, thus the name.
