WPC: Serene mornings in Maine

It’s hard to imagine a harbor being quiet, but frequently before dawn, it’s almost silent.  No seagulls honking.  No boat horns sounding.  No one yelling to pull up another trap.

Birds await fog lifting at the dock in Castine, Maine.

And it’s even more serene if fog has blanketed the area.

      Sorry to be late responding. I’m immersed in Christmas and volunteer work right now. But thanks for taking a look and commenting. It was indeed a lovely time of day — and well worth getting out of bed, throwing on my clothes and shivering a bit down by the dock. Memories — good ones — for sure.

      Thanks so much for taking a look at my photos. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to stay in Maine and walk down to the dock during the early morning hours. One of my fondest memories of the trip!

    Beautiful, serene photos, Rusha. Just looking at them makes me relax. I, too, love a foggy, quiet morning in a port. I always welcome the sound of a distant foghorn, however. Somehow, it adds to the ambience for me. –Curt

      Thanks, as always, for commenting. It was a great place for relaxation as well as getting a glimpse at how life goes on even in the fog. And that horn? There was one, coming from a tugboat that the Maine Maritime Academy uses. It blasted forth, and I probably came off the dock a foot. Wasn’t prepared for that one!!

      Most of these mornings were a bit chilly, but a good down coat and some warm socks go a long way. I was totally determined to see this harbor each morning we stayed in Castine. It’s really a beautiful spot in the universe.

    Beautiful photos! I love the mornings I drive through the photo to work. The little highway I take is very beautiful and relieves the stress.
