Day 52 Contrasts & Jewel Island 8-25

We sailed from Harpswell to Dolphin Marina, stopping to sit on the benches outside the harbor restaurant to do some internet. A big cruise boat was leaving just as Bryan was rowing to shore. The visual reminded me of the contrast between our sailing on a shoestring and the opulence of the cruise boat.

We then continued in to Jewel Island, arriving at sunset. I worked on some lyrics for my song “Sparkles on the Water.” There were a number of boats already there, so we anchored near the back of the fleet and Bryan tied the anchor line along the toe rail to the side of the boat to twist the bow into the swells. This kept the boat from rolling too much from side to side and we had a restful night.
