The Basin, off the New Meadow River, Casco Bay, ME 43 48.37 N 69 51.15 W
We left Annisquam, MA last Thursday and hop scotched our way along the southern coast of Maine with stops in York Harbor, Biddeford Pool and Portland, followed by two wonderfully secluded anchorages in Casco Bay.

Wednesday morning, again in light winds, we motored about 17m down and around Harpswell Point and up the New Meadow River to a place known as “The Basin”. We spotted several harbor porpoises along the way.

The photos below are from our 2nd night at The Basin, under much better weather conditions. Kathy made a fabulous paella with our left over mussels as well as some shrimp, chicken & chorizo that she just happened to have provisioned on board.
