Dispatch #3 from Monhegan Island
I awoke at 4:45am today and hit the road to Lobster Cove. I was pretty tired by the time I got there, but it was a good hike nonetheless. I found a comfortable rock overlooking the wreck of the Sheriden and Jamie Wyeth's house. I chose to do a couple Watercolors seeing as though I brought them to the island. As the fog broke, I started in and picked away until the sun was nearly overhead. Then I moved about 20 feet and painted, seaweed covered rocks and surf for some time.
I took the back path up the hill that empties at the Wyeth's and got a ride back with the caretaker, who told me Jamie will be in tonight. There is no guarantee that we will meet, but I'm hoping we cross paths before I leave. I think I will head to the village soon and maybe paint some oils before sundown. I'm sore from sitting, so a stroll may do me some good.
