Canoes too

I’m not just about sailboats. My lovely wife shot this photo while we paddled a canoe on the Androscoggin River.

The little islands in the river are man made. At one time logs were transported down the river to two different paper mills. They divided the river with booms. One mill’s logs went on the right side of the river, the other mill’s logs went to the left. These islands anchored the booms, or “docked” them. So they are boomdocks. Over time, the pronunciation changed a bit to boondocks.

We were literally out in the boondocks today. This is what it looks like.

I kinda like it here.
