It’s hard to top our visit to Deer Isle. Leaving the log cabin, casting off lines, and heading southeast down Eggemoggin Reach, we contemplated how very fortunate we are to be enjoying this life and having such good friends to share it with. What next?
We decided we would venture off to Northeast Harbor. It was a crystal clear, gorgeous day, and flat calm. We were on the flybridge, and it was perfect for deconstructing the joys of our visit with Enzo and Renata, and contemplating how we wished to spend the rest of our cruise.

Our last choice was to stay one more day to wait out the weather, but several phone calls later we knew that was not an option: Camden was booked solid. We had to go. Fog or not.
