Vacation - Day 4 - Petit Manan NWR

We went on a wonderful hike today in the Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge.

The Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuges span over 200 miles of Maine coastline and contain 49 offshore islands and four coastal parcels, totaling more than 8,000 acres.

The Birch Point Trail (four miles round trip) begins in a blueberry field and leads to the saltmarshes of Dyer Bay, passing through a mixed-wood forest. At the end of the trail someone had thoughtfully set Adirondack chairs.

Each little dot you see in the water is a lobster buoy.
