A Map showing some of Adeline's adventures during our week in Maine...
Casco Bay offers exceptional cruising possibilities.  If it's windy, you can find protected waters inside the islands.
In addition to the routes shown above, we also visited Fort Georges, we went over to Falmouth
Forside, circumnavigated Great Chebeague, went out to Jewell Island and out to Portland Head Light -
not to mention numerous trips into downtown Portland.
Portland Head Light - caught in a flash as the fog rolled in.  We could hear the fog horn from our Peaks I. cottage.
