Cruise to Petit Manan Lighthouse
On day five of my homecation we spent an amazing morning cruising our hometown waters – the Narraguagus Bay with Captain Jamie of?Robertson Sea Tours.
We left from the Milbridge Marina and cruised out to Petit Manan Island. The day was a gorgeous backdrop for viewing the Petit Manan Lighthouse where we saw grey seals and a lone Atlantic Puffin. Along the way, we saw bald eagles, eider ducks, cormorants, and gulls. We passed Cadillac Mountain, Pond Island and the Narraguagus Lighthouse.
We saw Pigeon Hill from the water. We’ll have a whole new appreciation for it next time we hike to the top!
I had two camera’s wrapped around my neck for this cruise – nearly strangled myself in the process of snapping pictures. Here are just a few of the hundreds of pictures I took today! More will be posted here in the coming days. (Click on thumbnail for larger image.)

This was my greenhouse at the height of winter. The snow on the roof makes it look a bit lopsided, but the greenhouse stood strong to February’s heavy snow. It … Continue reading
