Winding down our time in Maine

Winding down our time in Maine for this summer and once again Maine did not disappoint us with all the wonderful anchorages and gunkholes. The best hiking was on Mount Desert Island while the islands of Merchant’s Row provided several short hikes and interesting anchorages. Seals, dolphin, and eagles continue to entertain us while tucked away in a quiet creek or walking among the pine scented islands. We’ve had the opportunity to share all of this with our friend, Jim, who came for the trip from Vinalhaven to Boothbay Harbor. Highlights of our Maine travels included Admiral Perry’s summer home/museum on Eagle Island in Casco Bay, fireworks and meteor shower in Rockland, and sailing through the Shipyard Cup off Boothbay Harbor a race of beautiful 125’ plus yachts.

After dropping Jim off on Thursday, we’ll continue heading back toward New Jersey and expect to arrive mid-September for a few weeks.




  1. We will welcome you as always whenever get down to NC…just give us a few days heads up notice!
    Thanks for the wonderful blog and photos.

  2. thanks for keeping Jim entertained all week. I can’t wait to see his photos and hear about his adventures. Kathy

  3. Thanks for being such wonderful hosts, and allowing me to experience the beauty of the Maine coastline aboard Stormy Petrel. Our lunch at Perry Creek followed by a hike to the view from Fox Rocks was terrific. Motoring by dinghy into The Basin against a 4 knot current was thrilling, and our anchorage at Seal Cove on the Damariscotta River so tranquil. Life is such an adventure! Safe travels.
