Aura

Aura

First, look to park in the parking lot behind the post office, behind some trees directly across the road from the Marina.

Do not park in the spots labeled for post office customers.

If that lot is full, return to the Deer Harbor Road, and head up to Jack and Jill Place, which is the road that runs directly up the hill from the marina, between the post office on the right and the Deer Harbor Resort on the left.

Near the top of the road you will see additional signs saying “marina parking.”

After parking, walk to the  of the pier, take the ramp down to the right, then turn left just past the floating ‘barge’ with the gift shop in it.

My boat will be there on the right with a sandwich-board sign. Aura has a varnished wooden mast and a yellow deck.
