"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

July 26 - Northeast Harbor, ME

Mount Desert Island
Northeast Harbor Mooring

Today's weather called for rain all day and the forecast was correct. We woke to rain this morning and watched it rain all day. We decided to move to a mooring in the harbor rather than pay for the expensive slip at the marina...this harbor is very protected and there is little problem with wakes. Besides the tradition mooring balls the marina has short independent floating docks, which two boats can attach to. This was our first time to use this type of mooring. It would be a fun way to moor with a buddy boat, because it provides a small private dock. 

We spent the day relaxing, reading, napping and watching movies. Having a day of rain now and then really isn't too bad...it gives us a chance to catch up on a few things and after two days of hiking it was nice to just put our feet up.
