Departed Boothbay Harbor at 0600 and arrived at Camden at 1600. It was an easy trip, albeit cold. It is amazing how much cooler it is out on the ocean than in the harbors. 58° water temps will do that! Air temp was in the low 60's and a breeze coming across the water had us both in fleece/sweaters and wind breakers. Not enough wind to sail again today, so motored all the way. Funny, but since we left the Chesapeake Bay, we have had very few pure sailing opportunities. That is a surprise to me. Not sure if that is just the way it works or if the weather patterns are not working in our favor.

We saw a few porpoises and a couple of seals again today, but that was about it. Read about a couple of islands near Camden that were supposed to have a lot of seals hanging around (Reynold's Rock and Goose Island) so we detoured there before coming into the harbor, but nothing but a bunch of gulls. We arrived at high tide (up 10+ feet), so am guessing that had something to do with it - no place for the seals to lounge around.

We are planning to stay in Camden at least through Friday, and maybe depart as late as Sunday for Bar Harbor. Some of this is due to weather, and some to possibly meet Nikki's brother(s) up here for the weekend. My dear friend Rolanda who lives here has graciously offered her home (laundry and a bed on land that does not move) and we are going to take her up on it. Thanks Rolanda!!!!!!
