When visiting Monhegan Island, the wharf is the happiest place and saddest place – how can it be both? It’s the happiest site you’ll see once you arrive. It means a week of peace and quiet, beautiful scenery, good friends, good food and a chance to unplug.
When waiting for the boat that heads back to the main land, which also means you are headed H-O-M-E, the wharf can be the saddest place. Because you won’t see the island, and your friends, until at least the following year, if you’re lucky!
But… I have my photos, and a lot of them! Perusing old Monhegan photos is a necessity for me!
