Day 19-Gilkey Harbor, Isleboro, ME
We spent yesterday morning hanging out at the Rockland Lobster Festival. The volume of lobster served was staggering. There were huge permanent steaming vats with hundreds of lobsters in each. The festival was declared open by King Neptune who arrived on a Coast Guard cutter. After a full dose of the festival we motored to Isleboro. With beautiful clear skies it was nice to see what the coast looks like since we missed part of it in the fog on the last leg. It feels good to be in a more remote anchorage again. We look forward to exploring the island of Isleboro and surrounding islands for the next couple of days. We're here for a get together of the Seven Seas Cruising Club, of which we're members. We hope to meet other cruisers heading south, especially ones with kids.
