    It’s the last day of the program, but it isn’t over yet! I got my bags packed before breakfast, and was eager to head down to the waterfront one last time for another trip out onto Penobscot Bay, this time on a fishing boat! It was much chillier today – very much fall weather, instead of the summery warmth we’d enjoyed earlier in the week – and the crew brought out blankets for us to keep warm under as ...

    Back on the bus, we headed to Belfast for lunch and a walk through the town. Our exploration began at the Historical Society, where Megan showed us their treasures.

    ... tour around the exhibits in the museum. He was full of stories, and could easily have spent hours talking about his displays – it was a wonderful introduction to the sailing history of Camden, and to the close connection to the sea that helped shape the history of this area.

    We had lunch in downtown Rockland (just a short ride down the coast), and then we heard a presentation at The Island Institute. This ...
