Introducing Deer Isle & Stonnington
Traveling south along ME 15, the forest opens up to reveal tranquil harbors framed against hilly islands off in the distance. This is Deer Isle, actually a collection of islands joined by causeways and connected to the mainland by a picturesque suspension bridge near Sargentville. Sights are few but the area is worth it for the gorgeous views.
Stonington is a quaint settlement where lobstermen and artists live side by side. A few galleries and restaurants draw the odd traveler or two.
Boats depart from Stonington for Isle au Haut.
