Labor day

Looking to capitalize on the remaining nice days this summer, the DAMNclan headed out for a 3 hour kayak trip on labor day. We launched from Hodgdon Island in Boothbay and made our way to Specticle Island where we were planning to have our picnic lunch. Specticle ended up being too far away to make it to with the ticking, goldfish weilding timebomb sitting in the middle jumpseat so we opted instead to put ashore on Ram Island. Here, from a nice sandy beach we ate our lunch while Brynna worked tirelessly to ride the planet of all Periwinkles shouting "Death to all sea snails who dare to oppose me!" By the time we dragged her off the beach we had enough to make a fine stew.

The trip over.

In search of periwinkles

"holy shit, I found one!"

Back on the water we attempted to find an alternate route back to the launch but unfortunately for us, all land looks about the same from the water so we got hopelessly confused and were forced to go back the way we came hanging our heads in shame. Thankfully, after this year's race season, I'm used to that by now.
