Perfect Day-trip to The Goslings

One of my all-time favorite places to swim off the coast of Maine is the Goslings, a part of Goose Island off of Harpswell.  Last weekend we took my parents’ boat up there for a nice relaxing ride.  Along the way we pointed out places we had visited before like Sand Island while dodging lobster buoys and navigating through  the ledges.  Once we arrived and pulled up a mooring by the Goslings, we ate Cookie Jar Donuts (Kris’s fav) and celebrated my father’s bday!  

When it comes to swimming in the ocean, I’m not one to always (or ever) jump in.  However, this time I couldn’t resist.  The water was crystal clear and just the right temperature as the rocks had been heating up all morning since it was low tide.
