Stonington, Maine: View from Church Street

Stonington, Maine: View from Church Street
Needing a moment to chill out for a bit, I found myself perusing photos of last year's summer vacation to Deer Isle, Maine. I opened this one in Photoshop because I wanted to play around with another watermark I've done. I can't seem to find the one to suit me perfectly, but it's fun making the attempt.
The big island you see in the background is Isle Au Haut, where writer Linda Greenlaw resides. You may remember her as the swordfishing captain of the Hannah Bowden, the sister ship of the Andrea Gail, featured in Sebastian Junger's novel "The Perfect Storm". Ms. Greenlaw is the author of "The Hungry Ocean" and "The Lobster Chronicles", among other works. Some day, I would like to stay at her inn on Isle au Haut.

My goodness that is quite a drive! I had no idea you went that far out. What a beautiful place though.

You've inspired me to come up with a new watermark as well Kate. I think I've made one I like but I'm stil deciding on the right font. Like you I might have to play for a bit.

Would I love to be there right now??? It's 99 degrees here and the older I get the harder it is for me to deal with heat like this.

Sweet Jesus would I like to be there now.

OK, now I love that watermark, too! Lovely processing on this, Kate. Is it Florabella?
