Where Ocean meets Celestial River!

Where Ocean meets Celestial River!

Just about anywhere along the rugged coastline of Acadia National Park in Maine, it feels like edge of the world. And in the darkness, waves meet the sky at the ocean’s edge in ethereal union with the cosmic world. As the sky grew darker, stars appeared in sublime radiance and the image of its reflection on the Ocean’s surface in various shades of silver light. Every now and then the celestial river would align itself with cosmic ocean dancing through the infinite expanse in cosmic rhythm.
