While most visitors schedule their Monhegan trips in the summer, May is the time to see the amazing bird migrations.
I would love to stay at Shining Sails B&B for the entire month of May, every year. But Linda will have to retire from teaching for my dream to come true.
In the meantime, our annual Mother’s Day weekend bird watching trip to Monhegan, with our friend and neighbor Dona Seegers, is something we look forward to. We had a nice first floor apartment, looking out toward the ocean. We enjoyed some meals on our outside deck. The Inn provides a nice breakfast of fruit, juice, coffee, and muffins, but none of the island’s restaurants are open this time of year, so the apartment’s well- supplied kitchen was very helpful.
