Northeast Harbor, Maine

Northeast Harbor, Maine

 

And once we get onto this mooring, we just don’t let go.  What we think is going to be a 2-3 night stay turns into 6.  We take it day by day, hailing the mooring agent when they make their rounds on the water each morning.  Another night please…

 

 

It’s not fog or high seas keeping us in the harbor this time – so what are we doing?Really, not much.  We dinghy into the public pier and take the scenic, free (L.L.Bean sponsored) bus into Bar Harbor, take the walk along the ocean there, peruse the bookstore, buy some groceries.  We take walks in Northeast Harbor, crossing over to Somes Sound and look at it from land.  We come in almost every morning and walk to the Kimball Terrace Inn for breakfast, overlooking the harbor.  We go to the tiny Farmer’s Market after breakfast one day, and shop alongside Martha Stewart.  Another day we stop in the shade of a tree and talk to Chris and Emily about how their new home in Florida is coming along.  We read a lot. We take the free bus to Bar Harbor again with a list of things we forgot to bring, or think we now need.  I get a cheap hat so I don’t get so sunburned.  We get some more groceries and postcards.  We watch sunsets.

We watch the fog roll in. We listen to the lobster boats leaving early in the morning, and watch them unload in the afternoon.  We think about how lucky we are.  And we stay another day.
