The South Coast of Maine looks like a big hand with many long thin fingers reaching into the sea,this combination of nature with some creativity make this part of the world just wonderful.
Houses built on water front lots,boats anchoring in magnificent natural harbours,lighthouses with nostalgic &romantic atmosphere, restaurants facing the waters and spacious nature and fresh air that hurts the lungs-It makes one wonder if the locals feel and know how lucky they are??
The distance from Wiscasset (our C.G) to the tip of Bailey Island can be made in 45 minutes if you drive slow,we did it in 3 hours…stopping on the way at every opportunity we had to inhale it all in.
We have found a great stop with a perfect view to a natural harbour with a wooden picnic table and a sign that said “what is brought in must be taken out”-it was the place to have our picnic lunch and I am sure the atmosphere just made it more tasty.
After the grand Island tour we headed to Bath ,had a great meal in one of many restaurants on the water and enjoyed Friday night free concert on the city lawn.
If the weather would hold all year round it was the place to through an anchor.
