Bog Brook Cove Revisited

With just two days left before Hannah heads off to college, we spent the morning revisiting Bog Brook Cove. It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since our first hike here – seems like yesterday.

The fog rolled away from the coast just as we arrived.

It was a wonderfully peaceful morning along the Grand Manan Channel – not another soul in sight.

We enjoyed sitting on the rocks, watching the waves roll by, just taking it all in.

I spoke with someone last week who has seen whales navigating the channel. Today it was just us, narry a whale or seal to be found.

We were entertained by the pipers and plovers zipping about the cobbled shore.

Knowing we have one more day together before Hannah’s off to college made the morning bittersweet.

One more day, and she’s landlocked for a semester!

Focus on Fireweed


In August, Fireweed paints the Downeast landscape a vibrant purply pink.

The tall spires are laden with elegant, delicate little flowers.

Turns out that this afternoon I’m not the only one interested in Fireweed on the side of the road.
