This is Schoodic Point on Saturday (May 25), where exciting scenes can be enjoyed without staring at a digital screen.


This peninsular, located in Winter Harbor, is the only part of Acadia National Park that is not on an island.  Its massive granite ledges and volcanic basalt dykes have been fighting a war of attrition against the Atlantic Ocean since time immemorial.


Danger is in the history here, where sailing ships have foundered and a few careless climbers have had serious falls and even been caught by rogue waves and swept to sea.


Real thrills mixed with three-dimensional beauty are still possible.
