Life is a Maine beach ... Part 6

A tiny turnout along Route 175 in Penobscot has glorious views of the bay, an inlet between the land masses that end in Castine and the Brooksville/Cape Rosier region.

It isn't really beach, but more a pastoral view of the water and the delightful countryside that is Penobscot.

In many ways, Penobscot, Brooksville and beyond are like a step back into Maine's past. Farms are common, the "villages" are still small and many of the houses are older and cozy in their situations. The roads are quiet, with little traffic and plenty of untouched forests, not to mention saltwater vistas. This drive along Route 175 is one of my favorites, winding along on to Cape Rosier jutting out into the Atlantic that is Penobscot Bay.
