Throwback Adventure – Cranberry Island – August 2015

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In August 2015 Shadow, Buster, My Mom, and I Adventured to Little Cranberry Island in Maine.  Little Cranberry Island is one of five island in the Town of Cranberry Isles.  It is just 200 acres in size and is popular for its’ museums, gift shops, and lovely rocky shores.

We had a spontaneous Adventure to Little Cranberry Island on a summer trip to Maine.  It was a foggy, warm and humid-curly hair kind of day.  We purchased our boat ticket and set sail to the Island.  The captain narrated the trip pointing out various landmarks, and even some seals along the way.  Poor Shadow was a little stressed on the boat, however he appeared to still enjoy the view and ocean breeze.  On the other hand, Buster was quite relaxed, napping below at our feet.

Upon arrival Shadow was quite relieved.  He almost immediately dived in onto the grass for an energetic roll.  We were instantly drawn to the flower boxes and baskets adorning the shops on the pier, and the pleasing coastal shore.  We walked around finding some lobster traps, and a garden.  We spent some time on the water’s edge, the boys of course enjoying some dips in the sea.  Shadow, Buster and I also relaxed in the grass while Mom wandered in the shops and searched for shells along the shore.  It was a short stop, but especially relaxing and peaceful.  Wonderful memories of our Adventure to Little Cranberry Island (Rating:  4).
