Back post: Tuesday, July 27, 2011 :Heading for Long Cove off Muscongus Bay

We have been with patchy AT&T service since leaving Boothbay on Tuesday so I will go back to catch you up!
We left Boothbay Harbor under beautiful skies with 1-2 foot seas but with winds so light we couldn't carry the sails. We motored the short 14 miles to Long Cove to take a free mooring and see Bill and Ellen Addison who have a sweet old family (3 generations) cottage on Long Cove. They are members once again of Christ Church! We arrived just after lunch and then were treated to a land tour of South Bristol, Christmas Cove, Gamage Yacht Harbor, Fort Wm Henry on the Damariscotta River and Pemaquid Lighthouse on Pemaquid Point and Shaw's Seafood Restaurant on New Harbor for dinner. We really enjoyed our visit and the night on Long Cove was quiet with only one lobsterman starting his engine long after our rising at 8am! The sound of the water lapping on the nearby rocky beach was our bedtime lullaby.
