Boothbay Harbor photo session | Squirrel Island

Have you ever been to Squirrel Island in Boothbay Harbor?  Last week was my first time and I hope it isn’t my last.  What a beautiful spot!   The constant smell of pine and ocean was incredible.  I met with this adorable young family for their photo session on Squirrel Island, which was truly the highlight of my weekend. Seriously, if you get a chance to go, you won’t be disappointed. 

You can take a boat from Boothbay Harbor, called The Novelty, several times a day.  Cars are not allowed on the island so be prepared to walk.  Lovely boardwalks meander all around the island, taking you through the woods and along the water.  If you look closely you will see little fairy houses here and there in one of the areas of the forest.

All the islanders seemed to know each other, but I suppose that is no coincidence in such a small community.   I imagine that spending a few weeks on an island with very few amenities and little distractions would certainly slow one down.  Come with me on this visual journey as we see how this family spends time together on Squirrel Island!
