Gosport Harbor

Gosport Harbor is protected by several islands connected by breakwaters: Appledore Island to the north west, then Malaga Island, Smuttynose Island, Cedar Island, and Star Island. The boundary between Maine and New Hampshire goes through the harbor; Star Island is in New Hampshire, and the other islands are in Maine. Here are three photos of Gosport Harbor, taken from Star Island over the past week:

Above: West end of Smuttynose Island, late afternoon on Friday — the brown house (left of center, near the horizon line) is perhaps the oldest still-standing house in Maine.
