Maine continues to awe

?Maine photos??? Enjoying life in Maine We are well placed in Northeast Harbor, to take advantage of the Acadia National Park which surrounds us here in Mt Desert Island. LL Bean, the well- known outdoor outfitter company is based in Maine. They sponsor a bus system the goes all over the park, the service is great, and it is free. Michelle and Clark too us to the Thuya Gardens in the early afternoon, located on the East ridge of the harbor. It is a beautiful lush garden, with an old summer cot...

Exploring Maine pt 1

Maine ?Maine photos??? We left Lunenburg Nova Scotia after a few nights on the hook. The weather looked good for our westerly trip to Cape Negro, or if we are feeling up to it, we could keep on and make Maine in one trip. The trip to the Cape was just almost perfect. We had very small beam seas, and so we decided to keep on moving and go directly to Maine’s Northeast Harbor. We passed Cape Sable at about 11:00 pm. It was a dark night, but the conditions were still good. We had a current push...

St Peters and the Bras dOr Lakes

https://photos.app.goo.gl/6GLSxQ6HpRNfcR7Q6 The next morning we readied lines and fenders for the Canal and Lock, which we need to, do on our port side, where we don’t have easy access. It was great to have Gordon on board to manage stern lines, while I was on the bow and Ted drove the boat. We glided into the lock and tied up while they raised the water level, only slightly. We then had to wait till they drove along to the bridge which also had to be opened to allow us through. Immediately on ...

Gordon lives in NZ and operates as our NZ address and contact. We were still exhausted from our long passage, but managed to get the VIP stateroom cleaned up, the rest of the interior looking good and did a big external washdown to ma...

Offshore to Nova Scotia

Offshore passage https://photos.app.goo.gl/AMcd6MNMqC4iMA7TA I began to write this after 3 days at sea. 'We are now located off of Cape Cod having finished our second night. Jenny is below taking a sleep as she is off watch. I have the music on, the doors open in the wheel house, a nice cooling breeze coming through the doors. I am running the generator to charge the batteries, and to make some water. We are heading NE in nearly perfect conditions. Clear skies, following seas, 1-2’, no boat...

Heading north to Nova Scotia

https://photos.app.goo.gl/vE4BXN13TzX7QGf78 It really seemed that we were not going to make it all the way to Canada on this trip. Between the boat issues, the health care requirements, and that all of the Nordhavn Atlantic Group (informal group of Nordhavns and others who are casually travelling together) already in Nova Scotia, that we were just going to run out of time. But our very good friend, Gordon, was due to arrive into Sydney Airport, Nova Scotia, on 9th August, and we wanted to do o...
