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.
Of 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
we were enjoying smooth sailing on the broad waters with “The Narrows” looming ahead of us. However 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.
Even 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.
