This 2 1/2 hour boat ride left out of Boothbay Harbor, traveling out past Squirrel Island, Ram Island, Fisherman's Island and then up the coast to Pemaquid Point, in and around John's Bay, and then back to Boothbay Harbor.
Boothbay Harbor. You can see the fog hanging in background.
but not so foggy I couldn't get this pic of the light house at Ram Island
But it sure was foggy!
I did mange to get these Harbor Seals who were hanging out all over this particular uninhabited area. The Ledges I think...
and more seals
and then a lot of this until we got to Pemaquid Point and the light house there, barely discernible through the fog
Then, mercifully, there was clearing as we came around Witch Island and in towards Rutherford island (did you know there are over 4600 islands off Maine's coast?!)
An old fish house
a house I'd love to live in
the harbor at South Bristol, aka The Gut
Coming up on Gem Island
Gem Island again, because it was a little gem of an island. Just one little house and as we passed by I saw a guy enjoying the sun in the yard. He looked pretty happy.
This was the last glimpse of sun we had until we got back and left Boothbay Harbor. A mile or so inland and it was bright sun all the way home. Despite the fog it was warm (I was in my shorts and a tee) and awesome being out on the water. Our next planned trip is to the Boothbay Botanical Gardens which I've featured here before but not in a while. So. Maybe next time it will be flowers.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer unless you live in Australia in which case, stay warm !
