Trestle To Nowhere In Brave Boat Harbour, Maine Captured On A Colourful Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The picture on this attractive acrylic fridge magnet, from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts, shows a now disused wooden trestle which appears to go to nowhere. In reality this would have been the base of a bridge or pier which has long since disappeared. In the background of the picture are the tranquil surroundings of Brave Boat Harbour in Maine. The Brave Boat Harbour Farm District was listed on the United States Register of Historic Places in 2007.
Visiting The Area Around Brave Boat Harbour In Maine
Brave Boat Harbour and the Farm District are adjacent to the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. This a total of five thousand and four hundred acres of land, in separate pieces, which can be found along a fifty mile stretch of the southern coast of Maine. The idea behind the creation of the refuge was to protect the habitats of several species of migrating birds across ten estuaries, and provide them with marshland where they can have access to food and shelter. The piping plover, which is a threatened species, nests in the area. The refuge is not just home to birds though, a range of animals can be found there, such as white-tailed deer, mink, raccoon, and snowshoe hare. Harbour seals can sometimes be seen in Brave Boat Harbour. Nature surrounds the serenity of Brave Boat Harbour as can be seen on our colourful acrylic fridge magnet.
