Tenants Harbor, Maine, September 10. We had the hatches and portlights closed all night. The weatherman expected 1/2 to 1 inch

rain per hour! It did rain all night, but I don't believe it was that heavy. The ongoing fog and

rain are a feature of hurricane Dennis. The hurricane pushed the warm tropical air up north.

The waters are colder in Maine and the cold condenses the warm moist air. Result: fog and

heavy rain. The leak over the toilet paper roll didn't occur. We did get a small one over

Ellen's pillow. A towel at the spot dealt with that. The best feature of this frontal movement is

that the FOG IS GONE, and we may be able to move on!

The calm Atlantic. The fog lifted and the weather man was right, winds 2 - 4 k with clear

sunny skies. We motored all day with this sunshine into Boothbay Harbor. This is the first time that this

cruise has met my expectations.

This is Love Cove, an idylic little pocket of water just off the end of Townsend Gut. After arriving at Boothbay Harbor,

we turned left and entered a narrow slip of water called Townsend Gut. A recommendation of apostle Giffy Full.

This three-mile slot took us to Ebencook Harbor, and Love Cove where we anchored. To say there's a tree lined

edge along the "gut" is an understatement. The trees grow so densely that it looks like a forest. Meadows

are inbetween the tree groves, and summer homes are nestled randomly. Each house has

a cantilevered sun deck, a sun room with pane glass and the typical white clapboard siding of the New England architecture.
