MONHEGAN ISLAND, MAINE - NOVEMBER 25: Monhegan Island residents, Winnie Murdock and her son Kyle pick cranberries for their Thanksgiving Day feast, off Monhegan Island, Maine. The Murdocks forage on Manana, a deserted isle a skiff ride away that helps form Monhegan harbor. 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)
