For Tyson’s birthday, I took him out on a surprise kayak camping trip. We put in at Portland ME and paddled to Bangs. We ran into one person we knew at Peaks Island. We cought a couple of swells off Long Island. And we got in to camp early enough to claim a nice spot and take a walk around the north end of the island.

Sunday we took the outer route back home. There were plenty of great waves to photograph, but they all ended in rocks so we didn’t play. We stopped on Jewell and hiked up to abandonned WW I and II fortifications. Back at Peaks Island, we ran into a whole trip of people we knew, so we paddled the rest of the way back with them.
