First stop after Falmouth is the river Yealm.  It is a beautiful setting and very popular.  We are lucky to get one of the 2 remaining visitor moorings available.  We did not get ashore as we arrived late in the day and needed to get away early the next day.  Definitely worth a second visit.

Beautiful homes on the river bank.  NOT a low rent neighborhood.

The river is full of moorings.  No room to anchor.

En-route to Portland we are joined by a school of Dolphins, that play in our bow wave for several minutes.

Anchorage in the Portland Harbor at sunset.  We snagged a cable and had a challenging time retrieving the anchor the next am.

Sunset over the outer harbor, Portland.

 Poole is home to Brownsea Island, the location of the first ever Boy Scout camp.  We anchor off the island and spend the afternoon exploring.
