Mount Desert Island - South West Harbor
Date 1800 – Friday 1 July 2011 (UTC -4)
A great Boeuf Stroganoff last night with one of our diminishing stock
of Spanish red half bottles finished off a good day having arrived in
We sailed gently between the islands, playing dodgems with the thousands and thousands of lobster trap buoys – we had been warned.
Sailing between the islands when the wind is light and there is no sea running is great and the constantly changing views a delight.
This is the view back into
Finding somewhere to anchor was difficult as the harbour and approaches are crammed with mooring buoys. We eventually found a clear spot; there certainly isn’t room for many boats to anchor.
We had a good walk ashore and purchased fresh fruit and vegetables to last us for some days in the wilderness and also found an eatery attached to one to the Lobster Fishery docks so it is off there this evening.
