Day 17-Rockland, ME

We've been enjoying another day walking around Rockland.  It is like a metropolis both on land and water. They even have an ATM.  We walked a couple of miles with groceries and realized we left our handy cart in the storage unit.  Pablo really enjoyed visiting Hamilton Marine.  Aisles and aisles of marine supplies.  He was like a kid in a candy store.  There is a ton of boat activity.  The destroyer USS Mahan is anchored here for the Lobster Festival, schooners, draggers, and lobster boats everywhere.    The Coast Guard has a station with several big ships here and lots of cruising boats from all over the world.  Plenty of entertainment for us.  We hear it has been hot in Boston.  We have been wearing jeans and even turned the heat on one morning.  It is hard to comprehend 100 degree weather right now.

We saw this truck loaded down with beer, in line for the ferry to Vinalhaven. You think they're going to have a party?  Led us to wonder if Vinalhaven is a 'dry' island.
