Colors and Tastes of Maine

A book about the coast of Maine!

These pages are a few samples of what you will find in “Colors and Tastes of Maine”. Our book is a journey of Muscongus Bay that captures the amazing beauty of this area with Mark’s paintings, photos, bits of history of islands, recipes, and more! Come join us as we leave New Harbor in the Spring when things awaken and the working harbor comes alive to a full circle in late Fall. From there we go out into Muscongus Bay and explore some of the many islands and share with you the wildlife, the stark beauty of rugged shorelines, lobstermen at work, and especially the endless colors that make us aware of our Creator of all things! Seventeen of Mark’s original oil paintingsw are reproduced in brilliant full color pages, giving vivid record of the unsurpassed, pristine beauty of ‘Mid Coast’ Maine. The Chesebro’s take the reader on a private, chartered boat ride out of their familiar harbor into beautiful Muscongus Bay, all the way out to famous Monhegan Island and back again with little snippets of history, fact, and story telling. With emphasis on the small gems, the islands of Muscongus Bay. Mark and Lori are grateful to have a mooring and boat to travel to the sparsely populated places and to experience some of the best hidden treasures of Maine. The retail price is $37.45 and is a paperback and all 125 pages are in color with artistic fonts and backgrounds. Hope you enjoy!
