There is an enormous amount to see in this area and it's as scenic as one could hope for in Maine. The leaves are beginning to change here, which wasn't noticeable anywhere else but we are further north now. We are mindful of some bad weather approaching, the hurricane and our need to be heading south. We'd love to spend another week exploring, but will probably begin to head back toward S. Freeport and Portland. We have to pick up our life raft which we dropped off in Portland for inspection, and our outboard engine which we left somewhere else for a tune-up. We'll pick up a mooring in S. Freeport and work on the boat a bit, readying her for the long journey South. We need to unload some things from the boat that we find we don't need and run them up to Bethel for storage, then we'll wrap up our Maine adventure and be on our way.
We have had no cell phone reception and very spotty internet service. I'll submit this post without photos but will try to download a few while I have a little bit of a connection.
