Balaweed Rock painting #

AvatarPosted by Don Lenahan on November 23, 2013
Correct name for the actual seaside boulder is "Balance Rock." It's located off Bar Harbor, ME's Shore Path.

Hello Mr. Lenahan,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The artist's label for the image was difficult to read, and it has been incorrectly transcribed as "Balaweed" when it actually read "Balanced." I have corrected the record, as you can see.

Again, many thanks for correcting this error.

Best,
