Porters Preserve

.

Another beautiful summer day in Maine meant another walk along the coast.

.

.

This time we headed to the Boothbay region to a little speck on Barters Island called Porters Preserve.

.

.

23 acres of prime property generously donated to the land trust by the Porter family. It’s a little known, out of the way, peaceful haven of wooded trails and rocky coastline.

.

.

The minute we hit the trail? I knew I should have doused myself in bug spray before entering. The black flies were swarming and before long I was scratching like a flea bitten dog.

.

.

We meandered through a few wooded paths…

.

.

And then found the shore.

.

.

So pretty. So quiet. Give me a good book and a glass of iced tea? I’d be happy all day.

.

.

We walked out onto a pier and a float that clearly belonged to someone …

.

.

As it was stacked with new lobster traps.

.

.

But there wasn’t a soul in sight…. which is just the way I like it.

.

.

To be continued…
