East Penobscot Bay sits quietly in a corner of the sea, tucked away from nearby Camden, Stonington, and Bar Harbor, whose busy harbors and marinas send hundreds of boats out to fish or to sail. In East Penobscot Bay, broad islands of rock granite sit by smaller gems, some made of gravel, and rocky ledges on which seals snooze away their summer afternoons. The islands lack the smooth pink-coursed granite slabs that ring nearby Stonington’s islands. Bold shores and great sweeps of beach are more dramatic than picturesque here. Despite the exposed crossings, all in all this place is paradise.
