My summer travels are over, and my posting should return to a more regular frequency, for better or worse.

I did see a spectacular full-arc rainbow last week, and wanted to share:

The picture was taken from the deck of a cottage looking east over Muscongus Sound to Hog Island, where the Maine Audubon Society has a center. I did not check to see if there was a pot of gold there, but I do not think that it is a coincidence that the rather large nest of a Bald Eagle is located at the spot where the rainbow touches down. There were no signs of leprechauns (or unicorns).

On a sunnier day, I was close-hauled:

UPDATE: The boat is an Alberg-designed 18' Cape Dory Typhoon, and it actually belongs to a very generous friend who encourages me to use it when I am in Maine. Other pictures from two other days:

Escort, nice sail trim, nice lines - what design is the boat?

E81, that is a beautiful little boat indeed. Any more pictures available?
