I’ve spent many years visiting Rockland, one of my absolute favorite places in Maine, but had never ventured into the quaint town of Rockport before. It was an early spring day with the promise of warmer weather that I always look forward to after a long winter. My husband and I grabbed our cameras and a snack, then ambled up the coast in search of Curtis Island Light. Our travels wound us around Rockport Marine Park, then up a hill past Aldermere Farm, where we spied their Belted Galloway cows. We parked our car on a side street filled with lovely homes, then walked until we found the short path that overlooks Curtis Island and its lighthouse. We sat on the rocky coast gazing across to the island while basking in the warm spring sunshine for a bit, watching a pair of eiders cruising around. It was a picturesque Maine scene that we had all to ourselves for a brief moment in time.
