_We’re back…(at the Elks in Rockland that is ).
_All settled in and off we go…. It’s been a while since we took the kayak out so we decided today was it, we’re going out into the bay and do some exploring by water. Rockland Harbor is protected from the ocean by a granite jetty that extends out from the shore just under a mile. The base of this mammoth jetty is 145’ across and the top is 40’ of huge granite blocks put together like a jig-saw puzzle.
_Walking a quick pace took us a little better than 25 minutes to walk out to the end and another 25+ minutes to walk back. So having walked out there we decided we should paddle out as well. Besides, it was a great day for a paddle. Sun was shining, the temperature was in the high 70’s, and we just want to enjoy the water up close and personal. By the way, the ocean temperature up here in Maine is 60+ degrees, Washington are you listening? It was amazing to be right out there with the lobster boats
_as they were collecting their catch and making sure that once they were ready to head for the next pot we were out of their way. They don’t waste any time in between one pot and the next. We also enjoyed being out there with the large sailing vessels. In full sail they float by without a sound while all those aboard give a wave as they pass, it’s something about the water I guess.
