    It's my birthday weekend, and I can't think of a better place to turn 29 (for the umpteenth time )

    See you there!

    I'm not really planning to, yet. It's a long day's sail from here, so very doable.

    I'm teaching at the WoodenBoat School so will be in Maine many hours away. Have fun, Margo!

    We’re going. We haven’t been anywhere since the Arizona trip. And how could we miss Margo’s Birthday?

    It's a damn shame, but somebody has to do it.

    Arizona was like a plague ago... COVID was beginning when we were at Paul's at the end of Feburary, but Geeze!

    Think I'll be following the Maine rule: don't leave the state between Memorial Day and Labor Day..... and if you are east of Wiscasset have your timing right to even go to Portland.

    I'm thinking about it. Haven't been in many years. I'd better make up my mind soon to get a hotel room.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    is this the sort of thing you can just sail up to, drop anchor in the harbor ?
    or do you need prior arrangements and permissions ?

    Good rule. Going to Brunswick is as far as I'll venture. August is the least foggy sailing and cruising weather, too.

    There is anchorage in the upper cove and you can just sail in and anchor. There are bridge openings and channel buoys to heed.

    I’m definitely going to be there Margo! Russ and Julia are planning on being there as well.

    Being in August this year the WBS and the Antique Marine Engine show are on the same weekend. I always enter my boat and her engines in the engine show (in addition to bringing a few other engines), so I will be tied up somewhere near the shipyard/main entrance. That is unless the WBS pulls rank and kicks me out. As long as we’re there everyone is welcome to stop bye and put your feet up for a spell.

    As Thad said, there is open anchoring just past the Seaport. There are two bridges on the Mystic River. The Amtrack RxR bridge is a “normally open” bridge that closes only when a train is coming through. The Mystic Town (highway) bridge opens once an hour, at 40 minutes past the hour. The river is a bit ‘small’, but we’ll protected, but everyone is used to boats “hovering” for the opening.
