Panorama of the Hamor Tea House

This panorama looks north and slightly east towards the back of the Hamor Tea House.  The Pool is on the left of the Tea House, and the Atlantic on the right.

In the immediate background to the right of the house we see the thin strip of land leading to the dark, tree-covered peninsula containing Thrumcap (narrow treeless land jutting off to the right) and Fish Point (invisible beyond the trees on the left.)

The right side of the panorama shows Dead Man's Point, extending beyond the edge of the photo.  Crow Island is in the cove between Deadman Point and Thrumcap.  The far distance reveals the classic MDI mountain profile.

The view is probably from near the Cranberry Club.
