Coastal Maine offers glorious sunrises if you’re willing to wake up early, bundle yourself in layers, and stand on a dock for the morning show.
And you’re never alone. From birds gliding overhead to lobstermen checking traps before dawn, docks like Acadia in Castine put on a spectacle like no other.
Dawn comes in layers. First a subtle orange or salmon or pinkish sky.
Then a peep of light that quickly washes over anything in front of it.
To a full-blown wake-up of morning activities.
Just another sunrise? No such thing.
