Following our evening transit through the Cape Cod Canal and our moonlit passage up the northern New England coast, we arrived at York Harbor, Maine’s most southern port of call. In addition to the plentiful enjoyment for which the state is built, Maine represented our completion of what the cruising community knows as the Big U (the shape formed by connecting vertical lines up or down both the East and West coast’s with the lower horizontal of the Panama Canal Transit. While in Maine we visited with an abundance of friends and family in York, Falmouth, Bridgton, Topsham, Naples and Bethel who helped us celebrate our three year and more than 8,000 nautical mile voyage. Elizabeth Jean is taking us south to warmer winter waters.
