MONHEGAN ISLAND, MAINE - OCTOBER 15: Winnie Murdock and her son Kyle spend the fifty-minute boat ride from Port Clyde to Monhegan Island napping while Winnie's husband John drives them home, October 15, 1999 off Monhegan Island, Maine. 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)
