MONHEGAN ISLAND, MAINE - NOVEMBER 08: Lobstermen head for Sherman Stanley fish house at the end of the day, November 8, 1999 on Monhegan Island, Maine. Someone doesnt show, says one regular, we all start looking. Sherm's fish house has been used as a workshop and watering hole by five generations of islanders. 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)
