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

Aug. 15 – Five Island, ME

Five Island Yacht Club Mooring

“Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly, leave the rest to God” –Ronald Reagan
The Basin where we spent Sunday relaxing and exploring is a little piece of heaven. We had a peaceful morning...no one or boats to disturb us. After enjoying breakfast and coffee on the flybridge we slowly made our way up the coast about 20 miles to Five Islands...a little cove on Georgetown Island. Lots of activity here, on land and in the water.

The Five Island Lobster Co. seems to draw a large following. It's a lobster shack over looking the harbor, with picnic tables to enjoy your meal, with a view. We did go ashore for lunch, but the lobster was too pricey for our taste....we had a hamburger and a haddock sandwich instead. Our neighbors at the picnic table had the fried clam and they looked wonderful…everything we saw looked amazing. We wandered around town a little and then went back to the boat.

Stan's phone has died and he has a new one being delivered this week, so we are staying in the area for a few more days. We'll check out a few more anchorages along the Sheepscot River while we wait. There are hundreds of little coves and harbors along the Maine coast to explore.
