OK, folks. The Chinns and the Van Every's have booked their trip to Monhegan, so there WILL be a pM photo meetup Sept 28-Oct. 5. We welcome others to join us. There is a third photographer who will be there part but not all of that week. If you have interest, PLEASE let one of us know. Since Monhegan is notoriously quiet after dark, we'll have time at night to go over our shots, share knowledge and ideas, and improve our skills through networking. We will be shooting landscapes, seascapes, architecture, birds, lobster boats, and lots of fishermen in action. We'd love to have others join up.

I would love to go, take the wife as well. Can I ask what the average rate for the stay (not including flight) is for that week?
I take it food is family style?

It would be great to have you along! We were hoping you might be interested. The lodging varies according to what you get but generally runs about $150-$250 a night. http://monheganwelcome.com/sleep/ has some links to lodging options.

There are a few places to get food on the island: a small coffee shop that has a few offerings for lunch and/or early dinner, the hotel has a full dining room experience for breakfast and dinner but reservations are a necessity if you're not staying there. The grocery sells sandwiches during the day. But we are planning on doing some prep ourselves to keep costs down and avoid the hassle of chasing food without a lot of places to look. It is best to go over with a supply of foodstuff, as the grocery is tiny and has its limitations. There's groceries available in Port Clyde, where the ferry terminal is.

It would be nice. I'll have to convince the wife we need a vacation. It's not like it's so far away for us either. We can drive to the ferry.
Hmm... how to make it seem like it's her idea to go... :devil:
