Somesville, Maine, a quick drive by




Heading south on 102 towards Bass Harbor we had the fortune of driving through Somesville (link to this splendid town). It has to be one of the prettiest towns on the Mount Desert Island. The time, effort, and money spent on the homes and flowers are obvious at a glance.

Although I tried to capture a portion of the town with my camera I don't feel my photos really do it justice. If you've ever driving down main street then you understand.



















Such a dreamy front porch. 

There's something about large ferns and wicker white that lend themselves to romance and true relaxation.












The Selectman's building is certainly the town jewel, photographed day in and day out



















The flowers in the box are looking a little sad at the moment but after all it is the end of summer. Since we were there a week ago surely autumn hardy flowers have been planted. Better images of the bridge can be viewed online here or the link I posted up above. 

Looking at the photos online it's easy to see why this particular bridge is photographed so often throughout all four seasons.










The best part about this shot? The little hand written note on the sign ... 

'Pay here 
 Thank you!'

It shows there are still people who believe in the honesty of a complete stranger.
