Fingerprint Friday..Monhegan Island, ME..











Here is a beautiful fingerprint from God..Monhegan Island, Maine..It sits out in the ocean off the coast of Maine..many artist find it a great place to paint from and have classes there in the summer..You know what I find interesting? See the little shack there on the island off Monhegan..
Well, the story goes a man from NYC left all his wealth and moved there. He was called the "Hermit" of Mohegan Island. I really have to get the film about him , it is worth watching.
This man had it all or should I say, what people think is "all". Money/success. Yet, he gave it up and lived a very simple life in a shack.
I remember reading once, the lobstermen on this island will not go out, if one lobsterman is sick.
They start their season on New Years, but together.
Isn't this an interesting Fingerprint from God?
Visit Pampering Beki's blog for many wonderful Fingerprints from God.
Till next time, keep looking up.

Good morning, dear heart! I love the serenity of the beautiful island and the simple little house.

I saw your snowy day post below. We just got our first snow this morning and now we can't go out and visit some friends as we were planning. Guess God has other plans for us today...I'm thankful for all the comforts of home and to be able to enjoy a cozy day in the house. ♥

That was a wonderful fingerprint, in many ways. The feeling of community is one to cherish and build upon. Thanks for sharing!

Wow, that is simply gorgeous! That's the thing I always loved about Maine, the coastline is unmatched anywhere in the world! I hope you are staying warm & dry, we're in the midst of a snow storm right now, might get 20" when all is said and done. Luckily I have hot cocoa and laughter to keep me warm (or hysterical cackling as the case may be heehee) ♥
