Lovely views to Castine Harbor entrance and across Penobscot Bay to Islesboro. Watching the boats coming and going is a delight!

The remnants of an earthenworks fort built by the British in the late 1700s. You can see why they choose this spot once you see the all-encompassing view of the bay they had from here. There is also an old cannon on site. None of the buildings remain. There are several benches and picnic tables where you can site and soak up the sun and sea air! A nice respite during your afternoon walk around Castine.

Travel time is almost to its peak in Maine. The Peepers are coming by the bus load for the colors. We just came back from Fort Madison State Park near Maine . Hit 40 degrees and the reds came popping out. Give it two more weeks and POW Camera in the ready!!
