4 days and 3 nights was enough

So after a 3 hour sail in windy choppy swelly water we have arrived in one of the prestigious sailing ports on this coast.    We passed 2 12 meter yachts as we entered the inner Harbor, and as we walked up the hill to the grocerie store we saw the Church where JFK was married.     They were selling tickets on re-enactment displays and live music to relive the Camelot era event.  Hopefully tomorrow the Small Craft Advisory will be down and we can make the run to Mystic.

Arrived in Northeast Harbor

We were up and underway by 0600 this morning to make the jump to Northeast Harbor.   Arrived at about 15:30.     Couldn’t eat much because of the confused state of the seas after the blow yesterday.    Went through one patch where the swell was 20’!    Time to ditch some garbage, get fuel, do the laundry, dine on Main Street and take some hot showers.   I’ll post some town pics later tonight.    We have good internet too!

We ate at the Colonels Restaurant last night after we did our Laundry and had showers were the floor was not moving.    Thursday we will take the free LLBean bus into Bar Harbor to get some supplies.

Shakedown Cruise

For the last several days we have been on the boat making some final adjustments.  Our recut mattress installed.   The ticking is almost ready to reinstall.  We have been making lists of things to remove and things to bring aboard.

Danny and Jenny (Val’s Sister ) joins us for 24 hours as we sailed up into Grand Lake and then returned them to Gagetown.

We sailed Thursday afternoon after returning from a funeral in Fredericton, to Purdys point. The next day we went to Gagetown, topped off with fuel and got a some delicious pastries and the shop next to the Old Boot.  At about 5:30 we got underway with our guests and arrived in Douglas Harbour just before sunset.  The next day we went out to the “Bar” to have lunch. I was going to change the zinc but the wind was beginning to fill in so we went sailing instead.  Danny experienced some of the finer points of sailing on the wind, tacking, reefing and a great beam reach back to DH, he also tried out Val’s personal watercraft (escape pod) to investigate some movement is the reeds. Turns out it was just a rock.

Jenny prepared an amazing supper with shrimp on sticks and a salad made with tomatoes, cheese, cucumbers.

We had intended to take this picture before we ate but forgot and had to put this plate together from what was left.
