its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Pulpit Harbor - Anchorage

“Changing your perspective changes your experience.” –Author Unknown
We spent extra time this morning enjoying our breakfast on the flybridge. What an amazing way to start the day...the sky was clear, the temperature a little crisp, but not too chilly, the view out standing and the water looked like glass. We love these beautiful slow mornings watching the world come alive.

Like all good things the perfect morning couldn't last all day and it was time to move on. The weather predictions were for a strong south wind to come in during the night and we wanted an anchorage that offered better protection. So by late morning it was time to move west to a new spot. Our travel day was short, we only moved about 20 miles...we love these short day. There are so many places to explore along the Maine coast.

Our morning
We're in Pulpit Harbor with a great view of Pulpit Rock at the entrance to the harbor and the Camden hills across Penobscot Bay. After getting settled we went ashore to find a little general store for a few essentials. The store was less than a mile away, but the walk took us awhile. Along the way we found apples, raspberries and blackberries...we ate as many as we could. What a treat. On the way back we picked a pint of blackberries to take back to the boat. They're the sweetest blackberries I've ever eaten. We spent the evening like we started the day...on the flybridge enjoy our meal with a view. It was interesting watching the fog developing over the Camden Hills.

  1. Such beautiful scenery...awesome finding fresh fruit. Such challenging tide...but seeing that lobster makes it worth it.
