Camden Harbor, So Darn Photogenic!

Sunrise is a quiet time in this small coastal town. There are birds in the harbor, but not even the crews of the ships are up at dawn, when the sun comes up at 4:30am. But what a wonderful time to be awake – especially on a morning when a Canadian front pushes clean cool air down. The Camden Harbor is always full of an array of interesting boats. There are historic schooners, wooden sailing yachts, luxury power yachts, many larger than our 1854 Greek Revival house! This morning, the large dark hulks of the replicas of Christopher Columbus’ Nina and Pinta were among the beautiful boats in the glistening harbor. Here are some photos of Camden Harbor and the Harbor Park taken this morning, June 27, 2014, before I we began serving breakfast.

Camden Maine Harbor A Walk from the Windward House B&B

Our inn is mere steps from the harbor. The quiet and the stillness are the perfect place to sit and relax with a cup of coffee, or simply watch the sunlight fill the space above the water. The colors begin as subtle blues and grays and pinks and get more intense as the sun rises. There are many park benches in enclaves among the hydrangea and rugosa roses. This morning the roses were in full bloom and the air was that intoxicating mix of clean sea water, Canadian high pressure front and rose petals.
