Thought the boat was missing
My lovely wife and I went into town again today. We stopped in at a hardware store, which she loves to do. It's like a great date for her. We also wandered around until we found a place to have dessert, rum cake and coffee. Some of the restaurants in this town are pretty decent, but most of them are darn pricey.
We were able to pick up a few groceries at a not too outrageous price. Around here that takes careful shopping. Then again, even high priced groceries are better than higher priced restaurants.
I'm told there's some serious old money families on the island. The Bush family has property here. They say the island used to be crawling with Secret Service back when Bush the elder was in office.
The anchorage in the Bayou is getting more interesting. When we headed down to the docks to kayak back to our boat, we couldn't see it. Two bigger boats had anchored on each side of us, keeping us hidden from the docks. I hope nobody dropped their anchor on top of mine. Guess we'll find out when we try to leave.
The boaters out here are much friendlier than in the last marina we stayed at. We've chatted with a few and everyone's really friendly. There seems to be a general “we are beating the system” vibe to these folks. I like it.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
