2021-08-03 Heading for Maine

Just as we were departing a US Navy was returning to port. Much more impressive than a photo can depict.

After meeting up with our friends Frank & Elaine in Onsett MA it was time to head through the Cape Cod Canal. Summer in New England can always be a little foggy as can be seen in the below. The radar and a sharp eye allowed us to safely complete the passage.

Stopping in Situate allowed Annette’s friend Debra to visit. We were able to catch up in Hyannis a couple years ago and always a pleasure.

Another lovely morning heading up the MA/NH coasts towards Portsmouth, NH.

As we were approaching Portsmouth, NH we noted a drip of engine coolant coming from the Fresh Water Coolant bearing. Knowing the leak was not going to get better we went ahead and got that taken care of. First was to find a pump that needed to be shipped from John Deere (overnight) and a mechanic to get it installed because this was one job pretty far outside my experience. Thankfully after a couple days and couple of boat units we were on our way.

Turned out Magnolia was the latest addition to the Portsmouth Harbor Tour….kinda like being in a zoo.

We were able to dinghy over to a most tourist Lobster Pound for dinner one night. This side of the river is actually Kittery Maine

We were tied up to a floating dock which gave us a wonderful view of the harbor.

Vic the mechanic get’nr done!

Maine sure offers many dramatic sky scapes!

We made a stop in Boothbay Maine and neither of us could initially remember being here. Google Maps reminded us were here 6 years ago!! I think the marina had the same courtesy car.

Playing the Blues Brothers Sound Track!!

One more day while this front passes!!!
