Ch/ 15 Kt winds, Sunny and clear
When we awoke and got going we marveled at the Maine post card weather, and the perfect sailing wind. We decided to drop our gear off at the cabin and check it out, and then cross Jericho Bay to swim and explore the beach and trails at Marshall Island (near Swans Island). We had seen the weather reports, with some severe storms on the way during our stay at Saddleback, and then questionable wind conditions, so we took advantage of the day.

It was a wonderful sail with both boys taking doing the heavy lifting as crew, and taking turns at the helm. We anchored at Marshall; Carey and Christo jumped in even though the sun was no longer high and hot. We explored a bit and then got back on the boat for a sunset dinner at anchor of pan fried haddock, rice and some veggies from the Castine Farmers Market. While crossing the bay the sun went down, and it was dark enough that we needed our huge spot light to find the mooring ball at the Island. It was a fantastic first day of our time together.
