The weeks are passing, in some ways quickly, in others rather slowly, and I’ve now been on board our boat Pandora for a full month as of yesterday! This is the longest I’ve ever been on a boat. Here are some images from my month in Maine.
Herreschoff 12 1/2 (means the water line is 12.5 feet), well known wooden gaff rigged sloop from the early 20th c. designed by Nathaniel Herreshoff, “the wizard of Bristol” (RI).
Bass Island lighthouse, southern most tip of Mt. Desert Island. This is the most photographed lighthouse in Maine!
Our boat, Pandora, is in the center of this photo, taken from the lookout on the way up to Thuya Gardens in Northeast Harbor, on Mt. Desert Island.

Bee house at Thuya Gardens. Bob took this photo for me so I could remind him to make one for our garden!
The fog bank rolling into Southwest Harbor on Mt. Desert Island.
The fog bank coming into the harbor and boats rapidly disappearing!
The rapidly ebbing tide near Blue Hill. This type of rushing tidal current is called a reversing waterfall. This is supposedly the biggest reversing falls in Maine.
