Sky and Water Drama

Today was a phenomenal day for dramatic clouds. Since pictures are so much better I’ll keep the words to a minimum. Today we traveled south towards Camden Maine but got side tracked at Camden Hills State Park, home of Mount Battie.

The clouds, early morning sun and water from the top of Mount Battie all seemed to meld together.

Looking south towards Camden showed off the famous rocky Maine coastline and the crashing wave of the incoming tide. In the distance you see the Town of Camden looking like the picture perfect New England coastal village.

Looking west we saw the changing colors, the mountains, monuments, and trees all from the Shore line walk.


The beautiful clouds stayed with us while in Camden. The harbor  made the perfect foreground for the clouds. The contrasts were what made it so dramatic.

And of course we found water. This waterway flows through downtown Camden and once powered manufacturing mills and saw mills which cut the timbers for the sailing ships of yesteryear.


We finally headed back to Searsport for a Turkey Dinner at the Searsport Methodist Church. They hold this dinner every second Saturday evening year round, and it’s open to the public. Beatrice will tell you more on this. After dinner we went to the town park which over looks the harbor. It was low tide so the brown you see is tidal mud. In just 6 hours at high tide it will all be under water. Dusk added dramatic effect to the clouds.
