Barter's Island Swing Bridge

Boat Tour of the Sheepscot River aboard The Beagle
Drew and I visited the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens for the main purpose of checking out the Boat Tour of the Sheepscot River. It is a one hour tour that begins at the new landing situated on the Back River. We accessed it from one of the Botanical Gardens trails. The Beagle is electric and holds 7 passengers. We were lucky enough to get a private tour as nobody else signed up. Sweet!

One of the coolest parts of the tour was our passage through the Barter's Island Swing Bridge, one of two manually operated swing bridges in Maine. Awesome!
