It rains in Maine?

I don't recall this in the brochure. Looks to be our fate for the next several days.

Unfortunately, I picked up a bit of a stomach bug and am not feeling great, so today's a good down day. We have a good 3G signal and a book. Listening to the rain on the cabin top is actually relaxing. All good.

Where are you guys? If you need a mooring in Casco Bay for a few days let me know...

I "LOVE" Maine!

Don't forget Port Clyde in Muscongus Bay. If you want a fun day trip from there you can catch the mail boat out to Monhegen Island for the day (great hikes and art ..as its an artists community)

Here we are at the dock last year.

Thanks very much, MaineSail. We will be poking around Penobscot Bay this week and heading your way next week. Will let you know. No firm plans other than a return date to RI.

When we leave Penobscot, we are thinking of a sail out there ourselves. Will depend on Wx. Thanks.

dtmacmilla is on a distinguished road
I have vacationed close by here:

How to Reach Us - Midcoast Maine Power and Sail Yacht Charters - Penobscot Bay Marina Services

for 20 years - in a small waterfront cabin built, owned by, and with a friend from my days of training as a surgeon. Our families have always enjoyed the time we have spent there. no boring times at all, what with the local activities. We have spent literally hours admiring the various yachts moored in the generous harbor. We have hiked, bird-watched, and enjoyed the local yacht club racing activities (Ensigns) without ever getting bored.

i recently bought a cruiser (B423) and am imagining/planning a trip there in the future, from the southern Chesapeake bay(maybe i need to fully retire first).

i would not hesitate to pick up a mooring in Buck's Harbor, if I were you.

email me if you want more info...

and get well soon

I am sitting in Bah's right now! Unbelievably fantastic. We were the first in the door and and got the full tour of their options. We split a quiche (excellent and I'm not a big quiche guy), a peach scone and apple turnover. I do not exaggerate when I say the best ever! We can't eat more, but are taking a couple of blueberry muffins to go for tomorrow.

We left Camden on Mon (I killed the stomach bug with a good dose of vitamin B at Cappys Chowder House..... Beer). Through the Fox Island Thoroughfare to Seal Bay for the night. Then on to Isle au Haut on Tues. Rained all day, so we were hunkered down. We did hit our personal best on the crossing (10.2kts). Screaming. Honestly, I suspect the speed wheel is touch generous, since that exceeds hull speed. Yesterday morning

Having some iPad trouble....... Yesterday, we sailed/ motored against a northerly up to Castine and grabbed a guest mooring at the Castine Yacht Club. What a current! A couple of beers at Dennets, then dinner at Stellas, which I also highly recommend!

We're heading out of the bay today, there just isn't enough time to see it all. We have to at least pretend we are heading west toward home one of these days.

Not sure about next wifi access, so cheers for now.

If my memory serves me, I think my first comment when you said "a couple of weeks in the area" was - you could spend months there!

Have a super time.
