Captain Daniel Bennett spends his summers sailing out of Rockland Harbor, where he offers day trips on Bufflehead, his refurbished, six passenger sailboat. The father of two gives families a chance to create the sea faring adventure of their choice, sailing anywhere between one hour to a full day. The fee for adults to sail is modest, and for children, Daniel simply charges by age per hour.

We celebrated Father’s Day with brunch at the East Ender in Portland with good friends. Neither family had ever been to the bustling, two story restaurant, and all of us were excited to try the food. If you go, this is a place to indulge in pre-brunch sweets and savories. Our table of hungry kids and adults sampled crispy trout fritters, a homemade, chocolate and banana pop tart, decadent cheddar swirl buns with prosciutto and pepper jelly (MP’s favorite), and simple hushpuppies with maple sour cream.
