There is just something about spitting cherries over the side…
06 July 2011 | Bath, Maine
Hello again from Boundless! Today began with some adventuring around the mainland surrounding the basin. We hiked up to some not-yet-ripe blueberry patches, and found a lot of shiny mica along the way. We headed back to the boat, where we had an early lunch before setting out for Bath. We wanted to reach the mouth of the Kennebec river that Bath is situated on in time for the current to be in our favor, which we did. Our sailing trip consisted of crazy mind games that confused its good share of the crew. And after two long hours of begging for cherries by our youngest member, Jenny, the cherries were brought out and enjoyed by all! It took about two hours to get to that point, and then about another hour to get up the river. We got a good deal of sailing in along the way, which was great, and we even saw a seal as we were getting close to Bath!
Now, we are moored at the city of Bath, Maine. It is a very quaint town and but it has showers! It is raining, though. In a way, we knew it was coming - this morning, we noticed that the barometric pressure had dropped which means a low pressure system is approaching. Tomorrow, we are going to visit the Maritime Museum and take hot showers! Oh how we all cannot wait!
