There are some pictures below the map of some of the places we love to visit...

2 - Fox Island Thoroughfare
A great place to sample Maine’s island life. Separates North Haven on the north and Vinalhaven on the south.

3 - Stonington on
Deer Isle

A good blend of a working water front and artist community. Great theater, food, shops etc.... and did we mention the sunset?

4 - Bucks Harbor
At the beginning of the westard end of Eggemoggin Reach this is one of our favorite places to stay!!! Hot indoor or outdoor showers, New York Times and a bottle of wine. Schooners often stop by for the evening and seals stop by too. A beautiful lighthouse to boot!

5 - Isle au Haut
Wait!!! The cars have no tags or inspection and the drivers often too young for a license... welcome to remote island living.
PS. The "yacht" in the foreground can be yours... house not included.
