Ilseboro





If one examines a chart of Penobscot Bay, the long, skinny island that protects the bay from the north Atlantic is Ilseboro. There are many summer homes for the rich and famous (John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, etc.) as well as a substantial number of year round residents. It is the landfall we see when we look east from the campground. Wednesday seven of us drove down to Lincolnville and took the nine-o-clock ferry over, drove around the island with a few stops and returned on the 1230 ferry for lunch at the Lobster Pound. It was a pleasant day that was enhanced by perfect weather.
The first picture shows the ferry, the Margaret Chase Smith. The second is the small lighthouse on Isleboro. The last shot shows the Belfast harbor. I snapped it out the window as we were driving home. It was taken from the middle of the Route 1 bridge over the Passagassawakeag River, and, no, I was not driving.
