islands of the Grenadines and up to St. Vincent. The boats were old sailboats with duct tape holding the mast together and the rides weren't exactly the safest in the world. When I heard that there was a mail boat in Portland, Maine I had to take a tour.
Instantly, it wasn't exactly like the trip I had before. The boat was more of a ship and since it was a sunny day, it was packed with people. Most of the people on board were tourists with a scattering of workers getting on from an island to go back home.
I love being on a boat. At the beginning, I was excited to board and feel it move across the bay. By the looks of it, it seemed many people were prepared for taking a three hour tour with snacks and drinks. The captain and our tour guide was a woman which I found interesting. What a fun job to drive a boat to different islands in Maine and being far enough away from tourists that you didn't have to talk to them.
