After anchoring we had an early dinner and then headed for shore. The first time with our newly reconfigured dinghy. We changed from a heavy 4-stroke steering wheel with power tilt and electric start, to a lightweight 2-stroke tiller steer and a pull start. We shaved more than 175 pounds of wieght from our dinghy, and opened up the interior space so we can better fit our bikes, and all the supplies we will be shuttling back to the boat over the year or two. We miss the comfy seats, and the power tilt and electric start. But the new configuration is definitely more practical, and there is a lot less to maintain as is now a model of simplicity. We went to shore and once again the kids were in the surf with clothes and not bathing suits. (Laundry was done tonight onboard with our boat's washer/dryer). We scoped out the skim boarding and it could be a good spot if the tide us right. So tomorrow along with Westport, we hope for good weather and beach time.

2 dinghies, 2 kayaks, 4 bikes, 2 kneeboards, and more.
