SEPTEMBER 23, 2007
This morning we woke to a bright, crisp, windy, morning (last night a cold front went through).
We rose early and as we were leaving the harbor, with the brisk northwest wind to our back, we caught the fever and could not resist the temptation be a little crazy. We decided to sail back to Southwest Harbor and have our traditional last lobster & clam feast.
We had a great reach and run back through Muscle Ridge Channel, across West Penobscot Bay, through Fox Island Thoroughfare, across East Penobscot Bay, through Merchant Row (past Stonington), across Jericho Bay, and through Casco Passage.
It was getting close to sunset so we reluctantly pulled into Opechee Island Harbor for the night.
Now this is what sailing is all about.
