Sailing trip on Penobscot Bay aboard The Angelique

A few years ago, thanks to the wisdom of my mother-in-law and her fiancé who decided to get married aboard the Angelique, my wife and I had the wonderful experience of sailing the Penobscot Bay along the very scenic coast of Maine.  Of course, the first thing packed was the Nikon!  The above photo and the following two photos are still included on the Angelique’s website.

Below are additional photos from this memorable trip.  The itinerary includes a stop at one of the offshore islands for some hiking and a lobster boil dinner.  Lobster doesn’t get any better than this!

One evening, the Angelique glided into a picturesque cove to anchor for the night.  A private sailboat joined us a short while later.  This photo shows the anchorage and the rock formation known as “Pulpit Rock” from which the harbor takes its name.

The “mountains” in the background in a number of these photos are known as the Camden Hills.

  2. Gary, Now this is the way to start a day. To be reminded of all the beauty out there waiting. The old “Where you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle cannot grow” by Burnett applies often. This is a way with your photography to tend roses.
