Further East

16 August 2016 | Roque Island, ME
Rich
We left Swan’s headed East along the coast for about 50 miles to Roque Island; the first time we have cruised East of Acadia. As the cruising guide says, once you pass Schoodic Point East of Acadia, you are entering a world where fishing and lobstering are all important and facilities for yachts are almost nonexistent. On the other hand, the scenery is magnificent. Roque Island is just East of Jonesport, which has the largest lobster fleet in Eastern Maine. We entered it through a narrow thorofare to see its mile long white sand beach. The water temperature was 59 degrees which was probably why we didn’t see any swimmers. The weather was great when we arrived but heavy rain and strong Southwest winds were forecast overnight so we anchored in Shorey Cove on the North side of the island. There was also a long beach but not quite as sandy. We had a sheltered night and awoke to heavy fog with our only challenge bailing out the dinghy full of about eight inches of water.
