“These photos were taken on Saturday, April 9th, at Wolfe’s Neck State Park in Freeport, on the Casco Bay Trail. In the first picture, look closely to spot the osprey nest on this specially protected island. Though there was a chilly breeze coming out of the NNW that afternoon, when you climbed down the stairs on this particular part of the trail to be where the ocean meets the shore, you were facing east and out of the wind. The sun had warmed the rocks, and I sat down for a while. The air was exhilarating, and I found myself taking some of the most peaceful breaths I’ve had in some time, feeling like I was having a high tide of my own. I marveled at how just being amongst the pine and firs was helping me so much. The bubbly gurgle of the waves lapping up against the land is one of the sweetest sounds on earth–as wondrous as a baby cooing in your arms.” Photos by NRCM member Anne Rankin-Kotchek of Rockville, Maryland
