Along the same stretch of coast as the Pemaquid Point lighthouse I posted the other day, there is a historic settlement, visible only in the ruins that have been partially excavated. After we walked around the grassy stone strewn hollows, which were the location of the old buildings, roped off and explained by signs, we were trying to imagine what life must have been like in the 1700's. I walked over towards the water and gazed over this scene. Without that picturesque building on stilts, the scene would have been perhaps not too different to what met the eyes of the early settlers. The mist was settling over the distant hills across the bay as the shadows lengthened. I would have been tempted to settle there myself.
