August 20th - Bucks Harbor was a great anchorage. It was a long day in the fog to get there, but it was far enough inland that we were rewarded with calm clear weather and very few lobster pots.

August 21st - Camden is Maine's iconic harbor village, where the windjammer fleet is based. Granted, because of tourism, it's a bit Disneyfied, compared to the more obscure villages. But nonetheless it's a lovely natural setting with a very charming and busy village.
We tied up at a very convenient Camden Yacht Club float. Camden Harbor is a very small scenic harbor, so in order to squeeze the most boats, small detached docks are lined up with a yacht tied on each side.

Disneyfied?! Aw, come on--it's just a really pretty town. We have a lot going on year-round, and it's a great place from which to start a cruise.ReplyDelete
BTW, we're anchored next to you in Back Creek (October 13).
