its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Aug. 18 - Riggs Cove, ME

Robinhood Marine Center

“He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.” ―Socrates
Some days we have to get everyday life things done...we can't play everyday. Stan's phone died last week, so he ordered a new one and had it delivered to Robinhood Marine Center in Riggs Cove.

After breakfast this morning we crossed the Sheepscot River and went into the marina. What a beautiful place...they have a great place with everything a cruiser could need, even a courtesy car. Before we picked up our mooring we went to the fuel dock for a pump out and water. While we were at the dock I also started a load of laundry.

Stan's phone had arrived, but getting it set up took much longer than we expected. In fact it took all day and most of the evening. During part of the set up process we took a break and took the car into Bath for a few groceries. The good news is he's connected to the world again. Technically certainly makes life a lot easier but sometimes it gets in the way of enjoying a beautiful day.

Robinhood Marine Center's library to the left and park to the right
Chief Mahotivormet's (English name; Robinhood) summer home was near the entrance to the Marine Center. He lived here in the mid 1600's.
The marina library is located in a building that was built in 1800. It felt like we were in a Maine cabin in the woods.
