SEPTEMBER 8, 2007
In the morning, we went ashore, on Cross Island and walked many miles of the forest trails and shoreline. The island is rather large and one could spend days exploring. The majority of the shorelines are high, bold, rocky, cliffs which provide great views.
When we finally returned to the boat we moved on to Little River Harbor and the small town of Cutler overlooking the harbor. The primarily working harbor (no services for cruisers) is filled with lobster and fishing boats and it is a good place to get an idea of what the life style is all about (at least in the warmer months).
Cutler will be our last stop in our trek East. It is about 15 miles from the Canadian border and Grand Manan Island (Canada) is visible off the coast guarding the Bay of Fundy. This year we do not want to enter Canadian waters since we have not adequately researched their requirements and all the new regulations. For instance we do know that they do not approve of entry with weapons and greater than 40oz of alcohol (a difficult thing for wine drinkers to not do). Next year we will be better prepared.
We finished the day off feasting on freshly steamed lobsters and watching the sunset.
