Kayaking Maine 2005

Off to Maine's Coastal Islands to Celibate Alison's Birthday (one with a zero in it). Yeah, it's what she wanted to do!

An after lunch nap on a small granite island.
A pristine beach on an island we had to ourselves.
Happy Camper
We paddled for a day and a half in heavy fog and rain (very thankful for a good marine GPS unit). This was about as good as it got. The island has a tall knob with great views (when it's clear). Maybe next time.
Our damp rainy and foggy camp. We're off making a pot of afternoon tea to warm up.
Warming up just after the fog lifted.

In the distance: hundreds and hundreds of islands to investigate.
A huge beach and nobody but us!

Unloading for a lunch break. We grew fond of these little bumps of granite.

Our first night. We walked these granite slabs around the island in about five minutes. You can just see our yellow kayak behind some rocks in the upper right of the picture.
Pensively watching waves break on the rocks.
Gotta do somethng about that farmer tan!
Happy campers!
