Even Sheep Go to Sea

This photograph entitled "Pentecost" by Peter Ralston, 1983, was posted by Maine Magazine to their Facebook page, yesterday.

There was a time when sheep were transported by boat from mainland to island, in Maine and Massachusetts, to clear land.  Again today, flocks of sheep are growing in popularity for keeping brush and grass under control. Whatever the reason for this particular voyage, it's a lovely image.
