Expected to be holed up for the whole of yesterday but skies cleared by midday, so off in the dinghy, 15 mins upriver, to hire a car. Our objective, to buy a comprehensive cruising guide to Maine. Our present one covering the entire area north of Chesapeake is distinctly lacking in detail. Success.
Today’s task- to check out boatyards for winter boat storage. Drove here, there and everywhere. Saw three and have decided on one with a sailmaker on site- to repair the torn cruising chute and to wash, check and store the other sails. Also specialists in Volvo engines- another plus.
Discovered a wonderful baker nearby. Bought fresh sourdough bread and a wild blueberry pie- another Maine speciality. Delish.
Chance encounters and conversations have made this trip. A casual question in a supermarket today led to emails being exchanged and a promise to visit, share drinks as well as sailing experiences. Nancy, you are in the diary.
