We spent 11 wonderful days in Portland. After resting from our passage we had ourselves a bit of a culture fix with two trips to the cinema and one to the opera. We really enjoyed the town with its many independent traders, the great variety of musical entertainment and the very friendly people ("...and great local Shipyards beer" says Skipper).

We could so easily have stayed here all summer but with so much more to see it was time to move on, so we headed out, in the rain, into Casco Bay for the short hop to the anchorage at Jewel Island.
