Flowerpot Rock – picture essay.

Hubby had taken Mr’s 13 & 16 caving so after my gym class I took a walk with Mr 8 to ‘the beach’. Technically it’s not a beach, and never actually was, but as kids we would call it ‘the beach’. We’re going to the beach, be back later…. That kind of thing. It’s all rocks and we would spend hours here exploring, looking for crabs, sitting and dreaming…
The road has eroded over the years and is not suitable for vehicular access any more. The shoreline has eroded and is not completely the same one I remember, but there are still familiar rocks protruding from the water at the right tide times. Rounding the last corner you are greeted rewarded with the most gorgeous view. I still love it after all these years. Just around to your right, is Flowerpot Rock, so named for its unusual shape.
This is all just a stones throw from the house, say 500m.

And another view of the ‘old house’

The house may be moving on but we will always have our memories.

  1. Our whole geological makeup, and the plants that have come to grow here, have a native somberness, which is also matched in most Mainer personalities. Even in spring, when the flowers start to bloom, the serious nature of winter hangs over us a little.

    I particular like the green, and the white seaweed — ours is completely different!

    • Maine is a somber dark place. Interesting. I spose putting it like that, we have the eternal summer. Even in winter it’s kinda pretty, and there is no snow to add to it either. W have some pretty wicked seaweed here. Apparently all edible, as they are. Not that ill be trying them any time soon. Seaweed only on sushi for me.

  2. How utterly cool is that? Beautiful photos — they look so much like the Maine coast I can’t believe it.

    • Utterly cool is the word. A beautiful, but not so unique sea/land scape is what makes our world all the smaller.

      • And yet, as I go back, I can see some differences — the flora, particularly, is somehow less ponderous. Still, I do love Maine.

      • Haha, I had to look that one up, didn’t want to make a goose of myself responding with something completely wrong. Do you find them ponderous because its winter, or are they like that all the time. I’m so going to have to use that word more often. Many of our flora is indigenous to each country or area, yours included.
