17 June 2014 | Stonington and McGlathery Island, ME
We left Burnt Island on another beautiful day for a short trip to anchor off Stonington, one of the largest lobster fishing ports in Maine. We spent about four hours visiting art galleries, having lunch (great $9.99 lobster rolls) and visiting the very interesting Penobscot East Resource Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to the local fishing industry - pictured. We missed the Granite Industry museum which doesn't open for the season until June 30th. Having seen all of Stonington we decided to cruise to nearby McGlathery Island to anchor for the night to avoid being awakened at dawn or earlier by the Stonington lobster fleet.
