However, this time for our island visit, we chose to take the car with us and see the entire island, which is not very large, but our walking endurance does not seem to be able to tour the length and width of this coastline.
Most of the few businesses had already closed for the season, but the Peaks Island Inn was still open for guests and visitors to lodge and dine. One of the most fascinating things about this style of living is the isolation you feel and the absolute quietness of the community. It is apparent, this is a choice in lifestyle....people quietly go about their day to day living and 0ften spend their retirement years away from the maddening crowd. These are a few of the picturesque coastal homes on the island.
The island residents are friendly and speak as you walk along the sidewalks and will often stop and offer directions on something they believe you would enjoy seeing. Their oceans views are absolute exquisite!
The ferry ride was simply beautiful and a new experience for us. Another lovely Sunday as we say goodbye to Peaks for the season....see you all next summer!
