MONHEGAN ISLAND, MAINE - NOVEMBER 12: A lobster boat makes its way along the back side of the island, November 12, 1999 off Monhegan Island, Maine. Not quite two miles long and a half-mile wide, Monhegan boasts some of the tallest cliffs along the Maine coast. Monhegan Island, home to lobstermen and painters and a popular destination for tourists is twelve miles off the coast of Maine. Ringed by high, dark cliffs, its interior a mix of meadows, marsh and spruce groves, Monhegan is one of just 14 true island communities left off the coast of Maine. The island has a 65 permanent, year-round residents and the population grows to around 200 in the summer, with day-trippers adding several hundred more. (Photo by Amy Toensing)
