43° 43.42' N 70° 12.01' W 12 Sep 2020 23:30 None None None Handy Boat, Falmouth. We’re back on our Handy’s summer mooring. Gotta get our money’s worth in the last weeks of the season! Excellent launch service makes life easy here.
43° 44.61' N 70° 1.57' W 12 Sep 2020 23:14 None None None Potts Harbor. Back in Casco Bay! Gorgeous day. Fantastic sail today, beam, then close reach in 12-20 NNE breeze, a highlight of this summer of seals, porpoises, bald eagles and ospreys, granite and pine trees. Dinghied into pretty Basin Cove near our anchorage - strong current at max flood - busy with lobster boats and cozy waterfront houses and docks.
43° 50.73' N 69° 37.61' W 11 Sep 2020 14:29 None None None Boothbay Harbor - round 2! Can’t seem to peel away from this easy little city. We’re back on a Brown’s Wharf mooring at $35/night, plus timed showers at 50 cents or so. Thick fog in the evening but woke up to a crisp, clear, chilly and stiff northerly breeze. Nice to be able to see things again!
43° 48.4' N 69° 38.2' W 10 Sep 2020 14:21 None None None Squirrel Island. Private island, quiet summer retreat, families coming here for generations. Came to visit childhood friend of Jack’s and his wife at their cottage. Nice, comfortable feel, could see spending time here. Cove where we picked up guest mooring is exposed to SW-N and front coming through tonight so we moved back to Boothbay, in thick fog, in the evening.
43° 50.74' N 69° 37.62' W 08 Sep 2020 01:17 None None None Boothbay Harbor. Long day of motor-sailing into light SW wind, 11-16 apparent. Set out for Monhegan in light southerly but 10 miles out thick fog closed in and wind went more west, so we changed course. Fog stayed with us all day and all the way into the harbor: less than 1/10-mile visibility at times, lobster traps and fishing boats. It’s good to be here!
