“You know, Kent, there's a place in Maine where I think you’d like to paint. It's a small island quite a way out at sea . . . ”—Robert Henri, as recalled by Rockwell Kent , It's Me O Lord

The nearest, the picturesque sleepy fishing village of New Harbor, Maine, is 50 minutes away, with at most 2 runs each day, the latest returning to the mainland at 3:15 PM.
