The Land Bridge to Bar Island, Maineby: Kathleen Lisson
I love wearing hats, especially when I see how much joy they bring to strangers. I wanted to share a beautiful photo I took on my recent trip to Maine of a fellow explorer.
Bar Island is a small, uninhabited island off of Mount Desert Island in Maine. Twice a day, the Atlantic Ocean's low tide reveals a 'land bridge' sand bar that connects the town of Bar Harbor to Bar Island. Visitors flock to explore the tide pools along the sand bar and enjoy the short hike up to the summit of Bar Island. Signs are up on both sides of the sand bar warning travelers to keep track of the time, lest they become stranded on the island when the tide turns.
As soon as I read about this island, I was bewitched. Bar Harbor's story mimicked so many of my experiences in life, fleeting and to be treasured. Secrets revealed and all too soon out of reach.
As I finished my hike to the Bar Island's summit and prepared to walk across the sand bar, I saw this wonderful young lady taking the view of the bay from the island's edge.
