Fun with the Stackhouses and Tallship regatta

We had a great,foggy fourth of July enjoying steamed lobster and roasted farm fresh root vegetables at Herb and Cathy's quaint waterfront cottage in We found out that the small part we need for the frig is delayed due to the 4th holiday so we decided to sail behind the tallships to Camden and stay the weekend there admiring the all wooden vessels! The regatta from Rockland to Camden was the final event in the area's Independence Day celebration. The sail was a reach with 12 plus knots of breeze, and we reached 6.5 knots. we got great photos of the race finish at the mouth of Camden harbor! The flash in the pans steel drum band from Blue Hill played for the post race party . We hear they build the steel drums ther in Blue Hill. And we enjoyed the concert from the boat on an inner harbor float just 25 yds from 6 moored schooners! Gorgeous view! Saturday, We climbed Mt.Battie in Camden State Park after walking the 2 miles to the park then up the moderate to strenuous trails to a spectacular view on all sides! One can see at least 50 islands from the top and on the land side mile after mile of tree covered hills! We sailed back to Rockland yesterday and Herb came over and sailed back with us. He is not only a skilled turkey hunter and expert fresh water fisherman but a durn good sailor! Calling about the frigo fridge part and trying to get some info. Though the block ice works fantastic here in cool Maine. We are disappointed that the photos that Cindra posted and SAW on the blog last week have disappeared! We tell you there were 2 photos posted and poof! We will try again. Steamed lobster onboard last night and WOW! Cindra, David and Lulu
