Somes Sound



One chilly summer day on Mount Dessert Island we stopped along Sargeant Drive and looked out over Somes Sound [44.328073°, -68.303697°].  Although Somes Sound reminded me of the fjords of Norway, it is actually considered to be a fjard.

Mount Dessert Island, Maine


In July we explored the rocky coast of Maine in and around Acadia National Park.  I joined MDI Community Sailing and explored southwest habor.  We visited Little Cranberry Island and learned about the lobstering community at the Isleford Historical Museum.  We braved the frigid waters of Sand Beach and summited  Cadillac Mountain and still had time for ice cream in Bar Habor.
