  2. Quiet time is good and I can sure hear the ringing in my ears better then. Nobody likes noise but there are lots of sounds I enjoy hearing and not all of them are sounds from nature. I grew up in a railroad town and there's something about the distant sound of a train that is comforting. I'm an early riser, too, and I particularly enjoy all the sounds of the early morning, even including the background hum of the town, when the world is waking up and getting started for the day. There are more natural sounds, too, like the gurgling of a creek, birds chirping, children playing and the wind blowing through the trees.

  4. If you read the compass points on the weathervane in the fifth-to-last image counterclockwise, it spells "SWNE" - Salt Water New England.

  5. Growing up in a small town in the 50’s, local radio was an important part of life. I recall a program at dinner time which was called “Listen to the Quiet”. I still enjoy that type of music and the quiet of the scenes in these pictures. As always, Thanks.

  16. I so love this post and especially the last picture (looking across Louds Island to Muscongus Bay?) that I right clicked and saved; and now it is my laptop wall paper and gives me a moment of calm as I start my day. So thank you. Calm is good because (adding to the miseries of 2020) I just learned that one of my favorite places in that corner of the world was tragically and completely destroyed by fire last week...the Seagull Shop--gift shop and restaurant at Pemaquid Point. A restaurant with the most beautiful view in the world. The owners intend to rebuild and I hope they do. https://lcnme.com/currentnews/sea-gull-shop-destroyed-in-historic-midnight-fire/
