Rockport to Block IslandCathy
We spent Tuesday exploring Rockport. What a nice New England harbor town with so much history (and shopping). I did feel bad, we are docked next to Motif No. 1, one of the most popular historical buildings in town that people love to photograph and we are docked in front of it blocking most of the building. George was thinking of charging people to move the boat so they can take their pictures. That morning Troy did jump off the boat onto the stone wall at high tide but was quickly caught by George and he got back on. He was going after some seagulls.
Monhegan Island to Rockport MACathy
Saturday we took the ferry over to Monhegan Island, which is located 9 miles from the mainland. The island is a mile and a half long and a half a mile wide. We had lunch at the Island Inn and then hiked to the other side. The hiking trails are numerous, but narrow. The island reminded me of Cuttyhunk, but more populated, at least in the summer months. Only 30 people live there year round. The islands history is well preserved at the museum at the lighthouse, we really enjoyed it.
Northeast Harbor to Port ClydeCathy
Sunday we said goodbye to Jack and Denise, they are heading to Rockland and home for a while. We will be heading south before they return so we will not see them again in Maine. Edie and Peter also left for Rockland and are heading home for a few days. We may see them again in Casco Bay when they return and also head back toward Rhode Island.
Northeast Harbor, Mount Desert IslandCathy
We woke Wednesday to a beautiful day. All the predictions of bad weather changed so we decided to drop the moorings and head to Northeast Harbor on Mount Desert Island. We have stayed there already this summer, but it is so beautiful we looked forward to going back there again. We arrived around 1:00 and picked up a harbor float. Seaquill will pick up the other side of the float.
Burnt Coat Harbor/Blue Hill HarborCathy
For our final night in Bucks Harbor we hosted a cocktail party on Wildflower. We were up on the fly bridge with Jack and Denise waiting for the others to arrive when a storm blew through the harbor. We had just enough time to get all the stuff down into the cabin when the wind began whipping and a torrential downpour started. It did not last long, but it was fierce. We lost one of our rugs off the back of the boat. Once it was gone the sun came out and Dan, Daria, Peter and Edie made their way over and we had a nice time.
Rockland/Warren Island/Bucks HarborCathy
Sunday we left Rockport and headed back to Rockland. We decided to go out for dinner at the Samoset Resort to celebrate another great month on the water. The Samoset is absolutely beautiful and the meal at the La Bella Vita restaurant was delicious. I had the lobster ravioli. I am still not sick of eating lobster. I haven't had my steamed lobster dinner yet; I am waiting for the Lobster Fest in Frenchboro. My friend Edie says it's great and the best part is the homemade pie the ladies on the island make for dessert. The fest is the second weekend in August.
