First light, first day, first stop in Maine. Potts Harbor, Harpswell. Why here? Most importantly because we could see to come in. Last year we didn’t see Maine at all until hours after we anchored. We came in under white out fog conditions picking a relatively pot float free cove as our anchorage. Potts Harbor is surrounded by intense fields of lobster pots. Some boaters just plow through. We pick our way looking for random open water lanes. No place to be when visibility is severely restricted. Visibility was and is superb as a lovely Canadian high settled in on us yesterday.

The other reason to start here: for lunch. The waterfront restaurant serves a killer lobster chowder accompanied by blueberry muffins. Welcome to Maine. Thank you. Its good to be here.
