We left Newburyport yesterday at 3:15 pm and saw our first whale shortly after. I spotted it and everyone else was able to get on deck quickly enough to see it break the surface two more times. Remi thought it went by in "slow motion". I was so excited that I didn't even think of taking a picture, even though my camera was right next to me.
We had rain squalls periodically all night, some heavy, but kept dry under the dodger and bimini. Pablo and I are still figuring out the best night watch schedule. Last night I went to bed early, after dinner and then was on watch 11pm-4am. It seemed to work well. Pablo was fresh for the approach, sailing into the Sheepscot River around 6am. We anchored in Love Cove at 8am, had a great breakfast and a little down time. We are finally in Maine! We only traveled about 80 miles last night but there is no doubt the scenery and temperatures have changed substantially.
