Today we visited an island off of the coast of Stonington. The foggy boat ride over completely obscured the approach, and it wasn’t until we reached the dock that the island became visible. I think of my Penobscot ancestors who navigated these islands without modern navigational tools. No small feat! •

Spent the day wandering around Water Street in Stonington Borough dreaming of owning one of these houses. Love walking around this charming little town enjoying the architecture. This white house with the light blue shutters was one of my favorites. ...

Obi loves hopping from rock to rock and exploring tide pools. He’s grown up with it. We had him down on the beach weeks after we rescued him even though it was January. We’re the crazy people you see walking on the beach when it’s freezing outside. 😊 #stonington #stoningtonmaine #deerislemaine #deerisle #coastalmaine #mainecoast #explorethecoast #mainething #mainethewaylifeshouldbe #fortheloveofmaine #bestofthepinetreestate #lovemaine #maine_igers #igersnewengland #mymaine #naturalmaine #naturalnewengland #ignewengland #hikingwithdogs #exploremaine #naturelover #natureseekers #visitmaine #mainetravelcollective #travelnewengland #igmaine #coastalvibes #mainelife #newengland_igers #scenesofnewengland ...

So, I’ve seen a lot of people posting introductions to themselves on their pages lately so I thought…why not? 🤷🏻

I’m Josh! I’m 43 years old and am a preschool teacher in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Last year, I became co-director of Harbor House Children’s Center. So, by day I’m wrangling kiddos and when I’m not at work I’m usually wandering around the coast of Maine with my dogs Obi and Olive and sometimes my girlfriend Kerri, if it’s not too early. 😁

I only take photos with my iPhone. I do very minimal editing. I never change the photos to look like something that I didn’t see. If there’s a telephone pole or something unsightly in the way…it stays in because that’s what I saw. Same with shadows and light. I don’t change anything so that it looks more dramatic or vivid. If the lobster boat is in the shadows. It stays in the shadows. I want to capture exactly what I’m seeing. I want it to reflect the exact moment and feeling I had at that time. It doesn’t work most of the time but I like trying! 😊

Random facts about me.
1) Ellsworth is the longest I’ve ever lived anywhere! 5 and a half years now!
2) I’ve moved 28 times! 😳
3)I taught ESL in South Korea for 4 years.
4)I lived in New Zealand for 10 years.
5)I was a dairy farmer for 6 years while in NZ. 🐄

Lately I’ve become obsessed with this app that drops you into random locations in Google Street View and you “drive” around until you can guess where you are. There are different games with locations worldwide, but I mostly just play the USA one. Why yes, I do miss road trips, why do you ask? But seriously, as much as I long for the days of driving all over the country, I cannot complain about Connecticut’s back roads. There’s really nothing better than coming across places like this😍 #thesizeofconnecticut ...

If you are looking for a quaint seaside town with historic charm, and not a lot of tourists, add Stonington, CT to your bucket list!

📍Located along the Connecticut southern eastern coastline near the Rhode Island border.

🏠 This town offers a number of historic homes dating back to the 1700-1800s.

🌹 If you visit in June, the rose bushes outside many of the historic homes are beautifully in bloom along both Main and Water Streets.

🌊 At the end of Water Street is the cutest small beach, DuBois Beach, with a parking lot for easy access and beautiful ocean views.

💡 Right next to DuBois Beach is Old Lighthouse Museum open seasonally from May 15th to October 15th.

🚗 A short drive away, you’ll find historic Mystic, which offers a number of cute shops, yummy spots to grab a bite to eat, a Seaport Museum, and of course the iconic Mystic Pizza!

After the pups and I watched the sunrise 🌅 at Sand Beach just down the road, we took a quick walk around Stonington.
