Petunia and I enjoy the Mystery Harbor

This mystery harbor is Graveyard Point, which is located close to the tip of Harpswell Neck in Harpswell. I have enjoyed this little beach, along with my pug Petunia, for many years.

There is literally a very old graveyard that overlooks this mystery spot, which is an interesting place to visit. The view portrayed in your photo has changed a bit as the old fish house has been removed. It is a great spot to launch a kayak, to look for beach treasures while your dog enjoys a romp, or to just sit quietly while soaking in the gorgeous scenery that is the coast of Maine.
