Description

This chart illustrates clearly why the history of South Bristol has been so closely connected to the sea. If one makes use of the 'zoom' tool, the "Gut" can be seen as a narrow passage from John's Bay through to the Damariscotta River. Numerous coves, including Christmas Cove, and portages from one side of the peninsula can also be seen.
