My wife and I got out paddling on our vacation, spending a fantistic morning off Castine, ME. We launched from the town landing just Northeast of the Maine Maritime Academy and headed Southeast across the Bagaduce River to the opposite shore. The tide was dead low and the current light. We found a rocky beach and rifted across the shallows and through rock gardens. Starfish lined the bottom, along with the odd crab. We continued along the shore of the large bay, finally scaring up some seals as the tide rose. The announced their presence with that “who the heck is that breathing heavily behind me?” schtick of theirs. Great morning!
