Good morning everyone. I am writing to you this morning from Pretty Marsh, Maine, USA. Summertime weather is making a strong showing here on the Maine Coast. The temperatures are soaring into the 70s and cool afternoon sea breezes keep things mighty comfortable. This week we finally made it across the Bass Harbor Bar into the heart of Acadia National Park. Yesterday morning we sailed up into Somes Sound, the only fjord on the East coast of the United States. The pilot schooner Virginia was anchored up in Valley Cove and standing on the rail was former crew member Nate Killops. A light easterly wind carried us back into Blue Hill Bay and up to a secluded cove where we enjoyed a huge lobster feast and great swimming. The water temperature is really quite warm by any standard. Last night we were serenaded by the loons calling in the cove and the coyotes calling in the woods. The moon rise over Cadillac Mt just after 11 PM made the evening trip to the head a real treat.Days like these remind us to just relax and enjoy what is. As my favorite sailor hero Popeye always said… “I amsk what amsk.” Windjamming is what it is. And what it is is very, very good
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
