Seal Bay

27 July 2011
As our cruising time gradually draws to a close we find ourselves wending our way back to Penobscot Bay. We left Webb Cove this morning and had an exciting trip down Deer Island Thorofare fighting a current, dodging lobster pots and avoiding lobster boats and schooners! Once we were away from the confines of the narrow thoroughfare we hoisted sail and had a pleasant sail across east Penobscot Bay. We meandered into Seal Bay on the East side of Vinalhaven and dropped anchor at our favorite spot, snuggled between Hay and Burnt Islands in this special, secluded bay. We were pleased to find no other boats here when we arrived (this having been the site of the yacht club fiasco a year ago!) and only four other boats came in over the course of the afternoon. We spent a pleasant afternoon reading our books and relaxing, cooled by a gentle breeze. By early evening, as usual, the breeze died away leaving still, placid waters around us - perfect!

True to it's name there are always seals in Seal Bay.
