Holbrook Sanctuary

This week, heydays of tourism in Maine, I decided to get off the beaten path and venture to places less likely found by tourists, besides those with nice sailboats, hanging out in the beautiful coves around the Castine peninsula. I saw a speck of green on the google map and zoomed in: Holbrook Sanctuary, not even well-known among Mainers.
The Holbrook Sanctuary has not really an ‘address’ I could type into my Garmin Nuvi, so I zoomed into the map, and said “take me to this coordinate directly”. Trustingly I was guided along unknown, unvisited, small country roads along the coast with unexpected, hidden beautiful harbors and coves. This made me stop more than once to take in the very private gems. Holbrook Sanctuary offers ponds, hikes and picnic areas on the ocean. Besides me and a father and son with fish rods, it was a true, quiet sanctuary.
