AUGUST 14,2007

First we rowed ashore and explored Baker Island.

Baker Island was originally settled in the early 1800s by the Gilley family who farmed both the land and the sea.

Now the island is partially private and partially part of Acadia National Park.

After the crowds from the mainland showed up we left Baker Island and headed for Valley Cove in Somes Sound. Somes Sound technically is the only fjord on the eastern Atlantic seaboard though it is a modest example compared to those of Norway and New Zealand. It is found extending up into the southern shore of Mt Desert Island.

As the sun was setting we steamed our lobsters, feasted, and washed it all down with some wine.

9.3 NM
