Fishers Island

Today I joined a trip counter clockwise around Fishers Island with Josko, Mel, Harry, Gavin, Archee and Eila. Tides were perfect to have slack (and lunch) off Race Point and all paddling with the current.

On the last stretch from Fishers Island back to Stonington I chose to paddle to the Latimer Light again; a bit of a work-out now against the current for completing the 'circle' of my stay here in this wonderful place.

In the evening the door bell rang frequently for it was Halloween. First time for me to experience this typical US tradition and being able to see all on main street just out of the 1st floor window from the accomodation we are staying in. When I answered the door, one girl was already dragging her feet from carrying her bin-bag with sweets. With one sweet a day, they could well last until next years' Halloween.
