Camden, Maine - Home of Schooners

We arrived in Camden Maine last night, and are staying here for two nights.  Tomorrow we are off for either Pulpit, Maine or Castine, Maine, depending on the wind direction.  No fixed scedule this week except that by Sunday night we want to be in Blue Hill, Maine, summer home of Alan and Jane Birk, our next door neighbors in New London.

This town is a boater's town.  Many shops and restaurants are right down on the waterfront including a very nice library.  The photos today include a view of the harbor and also a shot of a 97 foot sailboat missing its mast. The mast is down in Newport, RI and being shipped up.  Believe it or now, this boat is here for a paint job even though it looks great.

Wayfairer Marine (place we are moored at) has a nice breakfast restaurant that is called TOAST.
Great toast with salmon, and stuff on it today.  The captain's lounge contains clean restrooms and three pairs of washer/dryers.  Please note the photo of our laundry.  Try to figure out who belongs to which pile.  I should note that the pile on the left includes a brown pillow case so it is even smaller.

Joy is preparing a feast for dinner tonight including chicken sausages, mushrooms, potatoes and onions and a salad.  We ate out for breakfast and lunch today so we have to watch our pennies. Especially since we got our final boat bill and it was just what we thought it would be.

That is all for now, may be out of internet range for a couple of days as we cruise the islands.
