Up in Penobscot BayMarkus
07-Sep-2011, Castine, Maine
A quick update from Castine where we tied up at the town dock last night. Had a very nice trip up here with stops in Casco Bay's "The Basin", Boothbay Harbor, Long Cove and Pulpit Harbor up in Penobscot Bay.
Dinghy ride to the airportMarkus
01-Sep-2011, Portland, Maine
Sailed back to Portland this morning to drop off Laura at the airport there. Laura may not have had the sailing vacation she expected but she sure will have a story to tell: Running aground (on our first departure down the Royal River - luckily lifted out by the rising tide within a few miniutes), towing a motorboat out of fuel off the rocks at Moshier Island (on our return to Yankee Marina), watching hurricane Irene pass by (by then downgraded to tropical storm) - and finally two very fine sailing days. Now we plan to sail to The Basin tomorrow and then make our way up to Penobscot Bay.
At Anchor at Last!Markus
31-Aug-2011, The Gosslings, Casco Bay
Namani is back on the water and we're finally spending our first night at anchor. After a relaxing sail to Eagle Island (former home of Admiral Peary, the Polar explorer) we spent the night in the Gosslings, a beautiful anchorage in the center of Casco Bay. Nicky enjoys the late afternoon sun in the picture above before going for a swim in the (nearly polar-cold) waters.
