In the northern end of Penobscot Bay, Maine lie a collection of islands aptly named, "The Northerns." It is perhaps my favorite part of Penobscot Bay largely for the fact that most of these islands are uninhabitated. Although a century ago, you would have found sheep and farms on many of them. Many were clear cut for timber and then used for grazing. Nowadays it's possible to anchor off and see nothing but stars and silhouettes at night.
