The Last Leg

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter that unexpected stop in Portsmouth, we proceeded next day to the last of our scheduled destinations, Dolphin Marina on the Harpswell Peninsula in Maine.

This is a quiet place where at night inky black sky is alive with stars twinkling like diamonds.  This night we were also treated to the rising of a blood moon.  It came up behind the trees so fast that in a blink of an eye it was overhead.  I’m happy to have any photo, but my camera does not do justice to the drama of this moon or the moment.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter a peaceful night, the morning was greeted with super, both in size and taste, blueberry muffins that disappeared so quickly I almost didn’t get a shot!

islandsOn a perfect day to be asea, we decided on a leisurely cruise that would allow taking in all the beauty that defines Maine’s midcoast.  What I see along the shore and on the islands that dot the bay never ceases to enchant me.  There are few places where I feel more at peace or more grateful for the privilege that is my life

Along the way are some of my favorite lighthouses….Pemaquid Point, Southern Island, Whitehead, Owl’s Head

Indian Islandand, of course Indian Island at the entrance to Rockport Harbor.

Close to lunch time we were near Tenant’s Harbor which was good excuse to stop and try out Luke’s, new on the scene this year.  We were not disappointed!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs we enjoyed clam rolls, we chatted about our five day adventure, and the good news is we four are still friends after sharing close quarters and some harrowing moments.  These are the kind of people you like to have in your corner!  I’m glad to have had you along, too.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
