    Potts Harbor

    August 15, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 75 °F

    This was our second morning at Dolphin Marina in Potts Harbor. They bring fresh, warm blueberry muffins and coffee to each boat every morning!

    It was rainy and foggy yesterday, so we borrowed the marina’s courtesy car and drove into Bowdoin to get some supplies (so, no, we did not sail the boat to Bowdoin like it shows on the map!). David had to spend most of the afternoon tracking down a computer chip for the charts on our MFD; the installer mistakenly kept it after loading the charts, and it will be needed in order to get Canadian charts. We are now having to wait at least til tomorrow (Thursday) for it to arrive.

    This morning was still foggy. We tried to see the Reversing Falls at mid-tide but we were a little too late. We will try again this evening. Instead, we took the dinghy onto the northern side of Basin Pt., (the other side of this bay). David tried fishing, without much success, so we then went to a deserted island where we saw an EAGLE, 🦅 which was very exciting (Cynde, you would have loved seeing that!). We also heard a couple of loons but couldn’t see them. After we came back, we went for a short bike ride, then spied another eagle at the top of a nearby tree, so sat and watched for a half hour, hoping to get a good shot when he flew off. Then he flew off and we couldn’t get the camera in time. Of course.

    This evening we plan to get lobster rolls at a nearby fish shack, where we watch the lobsters being unloaded every day.

    (Later this evening...) fog started rolling in before we could go to the Reversing Falls, so we will try tomorrow morning. The Reversing Falls are a small dam in an estuary. The water reverses at the change of tide direction.
