We had stowed our dinghy on board last night with a plan to bring Brilliant alongside one of the floating docks tied below a ladder to the fixed pier this morning. It worked – pictured is Doug departing for Providence. We spent the day crossing the Gulf of Maine, most of the time about 12 miles off shore, and had the smoothest ocean passage of any day so far on our trip. It was also one of the coolest days, aided by the fact that the seawater temperature is in the low 40’s. We are anchored in a secluded spot off the Sheepscot River called Harmon Harbor and will travel home to Camden tomorrow. We seem to have gotten ahead of our plan to let Spring precede us to Maine as very few trees appear to have their leaves yet.
