Hooray! My last Maine Island trail paddling day was another spectacular one. From last nights campsite I could hear the reversing falls even a slack tide when I departed, but I didn't go anywhere near them. Still there were all sorts of exciting currents and waves to see. Checked out Eastport. And then found the Airbnb where Warren, W & Dad will meet me later tonight (though I did try the wrong house first). Will explore the area with family tomorrow then back to Gloucester Friday. Thanks Maine Island trail , what an amazing experience

I did it! I paddled the whole Bold Coast in one day. Weather/tides/waves all worked out. There were big rocky coast and squirrelly currents. Arrived at sunset point RV Park just at sunset

Dickinsons reach yurt community was lovely including a yurt library I would have loved to curl up in but I had to watch the tide. Was a bit choppy out there today. Watched some seals hauled out from a safe binoculars distance. Made it to cross, camping next to an old coast guard station, and lots of blueberries

Oh the guilt and excitement of disturbing a bunch of seals hauled out on a ledge.
Made it to my planned site by lunchtime so put in the distance to get to a site with a yurt privy. Tomorrow I will explore pioneering yurt/simple living site

Stevens Island 8/23

So much easier without the fog. Tides have cycled through so now I'm loading the boat on an outgoing tide and unloading on incoming, just to keep me on my toes.
