Rik,

One other thought. You can usually pick up a mooring or drop a hook inside Baker Island (the eastern inside). A short row to a rocky little beach where you drag your dinghy up above tide and a 20 minute walk to the ocean side of the island for lunch on Dance Hall Rocks. It is part of Acadia National Park and the trails are traveled well enough to follow easily. A couple of small houses are privately owned but everything else is the preserved home of the Gilley's who colonized the island. Spectacular!
