Our first cruise of the season was over yesterday; a group from a large university in Boston, on their second trip aboard. We may already have seen the season's record for furthest guest. Of the 26 aboard, three were born in Iran, two from India, three from China, one from Vietnam, and one from Romania. If that wasn't enough, one of the chaperones is working on climbing the 48 highest peaks in the US, visiting Israel, while the other will lead a group to Scotland and Ireland but will be back in time to visit us when we're in Boston next month for the Tall Ships parade.
first lobster bake, keeping warm by the fire
And we had plenty to keep us warm: hot lobsters, hot dogs, veggie dogs,
hamburgers, camp coffee, and two kinds of pie!
I'm rowing out with the shells to reseed the lobster beds.

four students furl the jib out on the bowsprit
Three days of wind, some rain, some fog, and a little bit of sailing and everyone smiling.
and there we all are!
