Boating The Bagaduce, Check

We finally checked off another check off square from our Check Off List.  Castine has been one of our go to spots and when we visit we almost always tell one another that someday we really have-to explore The Bagaduce.

BagaSo leaving Castine harbor in our wake..

and with our bow pointing up river..

BagaBwe began our inland voyage…

BagaCOf course as with any exploration of new waters one must be aware at all times of positioning and potential hazards. And so with the chart in the hands of a very competent navigator and our vigilant lookout stationed on the bow to alert us of impending danger

BagaD we were enjoying smooth sailing on the broad waters with “The Narrows” looming ahead of us. BagaEHowever our tranquil voyage would soon be interrupted with the eddys and and strong currents that quickly appeared. Strong enough to nearly submerge a green can.

BagaFBut  just as quickly as they appeared, they disappeared, returning us to flat water, with our destination coming into view

BagaGand looming ever larger, the Town of Penobscot,  nestled on the shoreline of Northern Bay.

BagaHEven though we were some distance from the shore the river bottom was quickly closing the gap between us and it. And with the tide now receding we came about and worked our way down river, soon finding ourselves back in familiar waters of Castine harbor.

BagaIA “pitstop” on Holbrook Island with it’s convenient dockage was now in order…

BagaJAnd so another check off from our Check Off List and another great day on the bay.
