The guidebook says you can use the FIYC moorings for free for one night, but, shhhh, don't tell anyone, we stayed for two nights.
When we first arrived it was sunny and nice and this working harbor was a very pleasant rest stop.
We went ashore and had lunch at the Five Islands Lobster Company with Thistle in the background.
We watched the lobster boats selling their catch,
we marveled at the rugged beauty of this shoreline,
and we wandered up to Five Islands Farm for some fresh local veggies and cheese.
Then we walked back to the boat and did a little harbor tour, checking buoys for our upcoming "Buoy Report Card".
And then the fog crept in, and the current changed, and the lobster boat behind us threatened to use our dink as a bumper. Meh, whatever, we still really like this place.
