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

July 28 - Castine, ME

Smith Cove - Anchorage

Today was the first day we were delayed by fog...not too bad considering Maine's reputation for fog. We weren't going far so we waited until mid morning to leave, unfortunately the fog turned into a cloudy misty day. Making it a little hard to enjoy the true beauty of the shoreline. Our plan is to spend the next few days exploring Penobscot Bay. Our first stop was Castine, a beautiful town that sits on a hill over looking the Bagaduce River on the northeast side of the bay. It's the home of Maine Maritime Academy, a four-year institution that graduates officers and engineers for the United States Merchant Marine and marine related industries.

Because of the weather we didn't have a chance to explore this little town today...hopefully we'll get a chance tomorrow. We did take the dinghy into town to have dinner at the Dennett's Wharf Restaurant...a nice break in our day.
