Namani at Sea
The travels of Nana, Markus and Nick aboard Namani
A Bay to ourselves...
09-Sep-2011, Seal Bay, Vinal Haven

... almost. We were one of three boats in Seal Bay, a beautiful anchorage on the NE end of Vinal Haven in Penobscot Bay (thanks for the tip, Mike!). Left Castine at 09:20 this morning and had a beautiful sail beam/broad-reaching in northerly winds.

New Photo Album

Added a new photo album "Maine Shakedown Cruise" (see photo gallery link on the right). The picture above shows Nicky and Papa in North Haven, using the grocery store's wifi to check the weather forecast.

If you like moving pictures: Here's a short clip of Nana sailing around Cape Small, leaving Casco Bay behind us at last (we'll be very happy to come back though).

Back to School
Nana & Markus
08-Sep-2011, Castine, Maine

Yesterday (Wed, 07SEP), Nicky's school year has started in earnest. Two days of weather imposed down-time in Castine provide a good opportunity to start settling into a school routine on board. After German and English writing yesterday, there was more German (picture above), Math and English writing today. We augmented the "normal school hours" by some fun reading (e.g. the Magic Treehouse series with books on the Pilgrims and Thanksgiving). Up here in Maine it's also very easy to tie in some colonial history throughout the day. Nicky has also enjoyed our afternoon outings to the very welcoming Castine Public Library. It's easy to forget what a treasure these public libraries are.
