We made it to Maine! You might recognize the infamous 25-foot statue at the entrance to Brown’s Wharf. This iconic fisherman was installed in 1968; loving maintenance of this fiberglass, rebar and cement giant keep him standing strong.
Before we share the excitement in Maine, let us backtrack a few days to share our adventures with the Doyles.
A heartfelt thank you to Larry and Mary Dodge – who met us in Gloucester, loaned us their vehicle, and picked up a mooring ball on their North Pacific 45. It was spectacular seeing you
A memorable – moving – feast.
Gail and Greg Doyle brought fresh Haddock and all the fixings. It was insanely delicious. Look Trevor!! Can you believe we comfortably sat 8 in the cockpit.
The Doyles traveled on board to Newbury Port, a quaint place with a sense of magic.
A short drive from Newbury Port you will find Salisbury, MA. We never saw a salisbury steak.
This local spot is a favorite for Gail Doyle. We know why!
Kennebunk Port, ME
We made it to Maine – and it was record heat. It was beyond confusing to feel the temps approaching 100 degrees. But no need to complain, the cold weather is right around the corner. Trust me.
Boothbay Harbor, ME
This tugboat hosts a lovely restaurant and pub. Worth the visit.
Possibly the best bar we have ever visited is found at the Carousel Marina. We felt like we just walked into Cheers, and we might have been the youngest patrons. These crusty fishermen were a classic example of the Maine locals.
We are currently holed up for a storm, spending a few extra days at Brown’s Wharf, well, because weather happens.
Next destination: Rockland, Maine. Not sure when.
