Maine is a state of seasonal contrasts. Join us as the town of St George celebrates summer at St. George Days, then for a winter trip on the frozen Penobscot River to break ice all the way to Bangor on the Coast Guard Cutter Thunder Bay . Have you ever wondered what it is like to be on a Coast Guard vessel, driving up the Penobscot River breaking ice? We accompanied the fine crew of the Thunder Bay on a trip up the Penobscot River to Bangor in 2006. The sights and sounds of the ice being crushed by the double hull of the vessel are unforgettable. Join us as we share our experiences in Maine – summer & winter.
