New Season brings New Menu, New Programs and New Routes!
Food for energy on overnight trips is super-important and we plan on cooking some tasty meals using, where possible, organic ingredients from our garden. This will be the first year that our hoop greenhouse will be fully operational and we're already excited about seeing Spring crops. Also, we've recently acquired a fold-up grill which we can carry in the kayak for grilling fish so if you're joining us, plan on some fresh-grilled fish for dinner.
During the last two weeks of June we're planning on running four Kayaking Fitness training sessions a week to get ready for the season. These one-hour sessions will take place on flat water at Walker Pond near Brooksville, Maine and the workouts will be based on training exercises described by Dan Henderson in his book 'Sea Kayaking: Basic Skills, Paddling techniques and Trip Planning', which I reviewed in Atlantic Coastal Kayaker magazine and in my Island Notebook. To participate in these training sessions, call 617-957-8802.
Lastly, in addition to paddling to islands south of Stonington, we're planning some new kayaking routes which are accessible from Brooklin just 30 minutes drive from Deer Isle. On two and three-day trips we'll be exploring the smaller islands around Swans Island in Blue Hill Bay and camping on one of the Maine Island Trail islands.
