May 13, 2012 - Hope Island

Yes another trip to Hope Island.  Kevin has baseball games on Saturday afternoon which would normally wipe out almost any chance of going boating.  But, Kathy figures out that if we left a car close to Hope Island (on the mainland) we could get out on the boat and then dinghy her and Kevin into shore when it was time for baseball and they could drive over for the game then come back.  Weekend saved!

The weather was spectacular this weekend with temps in the 70's.  This is the warmest it has been since last September!  I seriously think we need to move to a warmer climate :-)  But, where else would we have such excellent boating opportunities?

After the game Kathy picked up Cindy's friend Mary Lou and then also got Kevin's friend Maddoc.

Kevin and Cindy check out our new cushions.

She went for a long time.  Maybe 20 minutes.

Cindy's turn for a spin.

Hiking around Hope Island.  BEAUTIFUL weather!

Cindy and Kevin start a new beach fort.

two kayaks stranded by a LOW tide.  They had to hike 1/2 mile through the
gunky mud to get to the water.  Ooops.  Watch those tide tables!
