Beautiful Day in Ogunquit

Possibly more than you want to see or read about! Last week DH and I drove to Ogunquit (because it was SUCH a beautiful day) to see the Ogunquit Museum of American Art.  I had no idea what to expect.  They didn't allow photographs inside (although I did some sketches which I posted previously) but here are photographs of the gardens and outdoor sculptures.  It was a magical day.

 Larger than life bear carved from wood.
 A llama or horse
 A lion

 Titled "The War Machine"

 I tended to find DH standing in front of statues of nude women.  Can't blame him.  They were idealized AND silent!  (although the torso below had cobwebs on her derriere!).

 Apparently you can take a cruise on a sailboat.  This would have been a great day for it.
 There were signs saying no sunbathing... but I think these folks might live in one of the adjacent houses.
The sky was bleached white by the sun, but the flowers and rocks presented plenty of contrast.

 I don't know what kind of birds these are.

 This is the girl with the cobwebs...

 These shots of the sailboat remind me of "that" cypress on the 17 Mile Drive in Carmel, California.  Except the Atlantic doesn't smell like the Pacific.  I am wondering if it is because the Pacific has so much sand whereas the Atlantic (at least in Maine) has ROCKS.

 Do you think the bee worries about whether the pollen makes his thighs look fat?

 Monarchs fluttering by the flowers.  Fabulous color combinations.
 This sculpture was not like any of the others.  Nor were the houses on the far rocks.

 Huge variety of hues in the water right here... and it was so clear.
 Unidentified predator

 Rush hour in the afternoon!

 Wake effects

 Clashing colors, quiet butterflies
 Fascinating Fungi (mushrooms?) growing on a tree stump.

 Waterlilies and dragon flies
