Pemaquid Point

I'm back in Maine for a long weekend on the Down East coast.

There are beaches of one sort or another (all small) scattered around Pemaquid, but the point itself is a classic rocky headland. Like much of mid-coast Maine, the glaciers pretty much followed the metamorphic fabric so the strike of these tightly folded Paleozoic rocks parallels the point as it plunges southward into the Atlantic.

The waves today were modest, at best, and remain so throughout this trip. As I write this, one week later, Hurricane Earl is probably stirring up things a bit.
