Into Maine. Freeport via Jewel Island

Freeport, United States

We sailed north into Maine and stopped at the Isle of Shoals. We visited Smuttynose Island in the evening and had a nice walk and met the slightly mad volunteer ranger.

We also met his goats

Next door was Star Island, a Unitarian Retreat.

We knew we were in Maine as the sea was thick with lobster pot markers.

The main sail was on its last legs, but luckily there was a new one on its way.

The day we finally found the sail was very exciting and Mr Crispy, as the sail in now known, is greatly appreciated.

Barney did get a little carried away by the moment.

The island was called 'Pound of Tea' I can only assume it was cheap.

We stopped at the beautiful Jewel Island

and enjoyed a long walk ashore

WW2 lookout towers gave great views of the islands

It was not easy to get lost either.
