Out and About..Tenant’s Harbor..St. George

007Nice little “beachy” area and a eatery on the wharf..

008The boat ramp seems a little tricky. Here is the end of it around low tide.

004Some of the pleasure craft and lobster boats moored in the harbor. Our pups enjoyed a cooling off on this side.

011A lobster impoundment..

012An old quarry…

It was decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather that we’ve been lately having here on the Maine coast and head down (my apologies to “Downeast” ) the shoreline, ending up in Tenant’s Harbor.
Located in St. George , on a peninsula, TH is a small, tucked away harbor that still has a good mix of fishermen intermingled with pleasure boaters.  It’s a bit off the Rt. 1 beaten path and therefore still has the old time Maine flavor to it.
The boat ramp looked a little tricky to me so if we were going to do some cruising in that area we would probably opt for launching in Rockland which is just “up” the coast. With it’s fjord-like qualities and many islands, this part of the Maine coast would lend itself to lots of exploring and rubber-necking.
There’s lots of history to discover in and around TH including taking a peek at the old quarry and a lobster impoundment nearby.
What a blessing it is to have yet another great Maine spot like Tenant’s Harbor, almost in our backyard..
truly a pleasure..
