September 16, 2013 - Part 1

Our friends Rod and Cynthia have a cottage on Georgetown Island, where the Little River meets the ocean. It is one of the most exquisite places we've been to in Maine, made all the more so because Cynthia spent her childhood summers here and it's hard not to imagine what that must have been like, standing on the deck looking down on the river, the ocean, the sand...

The Little River separates the beach behind Cynthia's cottage from Reid State Park, but when it's low tide you can cross the river to the state park, which features full ocean frontage. This angle shows the view to the left of the cottage.

We were so excited to learn that the tide was receding when we arrived at the cottage!  By the time we were finished with lunch the water was low enough to wade through.

This angle shows the view straight out from the cottage.  While there is nothing but sand visible, the river runs through a low area visible in the dark spaces near the horizon, and the ocean lies on the other side of the sand on the horizon.

You can barely see the ocean on the right side of the horizon.  During high tide this entire area of sand is underwater.
