it’s about a half mile paddle to this island from camp. It’s interesting from a geological perspective because while it’s a small for an island, it’s still a giant hunk of granite with a small layer of dirt and it’s the only formation of its on the lake. Where did it come from? In any case, I’ve never been on the island, have never seen anyone in it and don’t think it has a name. It’s not on any maps of the lake. Odin and evelyn decided they wanted to make a landing. so they did!
i think it will hereby by known as odin and evelyn’s island.
we made first landing yesterday and we all got out of the kayaks and collected some rocks. When we left a loon let us know she was not very happy with us being in her territory. I don’t think she had a nest on the island but it must have been nearby.
in lubec, maine which is the easternmost town in the contiguous united states on a secret mission to get odin’s mother a birthday present ( today is her birthday! ).
I’m guessing there’s not another odin more east than where we are standing ( though there could be an evelyn ) 😃
lubec is the hometown of odin’s great grandfather.
after 33 hours in the car, we finally arrive at camp in maine!
i’m reminded of the local euphemism, “you can’t get there from here.” You can, but it takes a awhile!
of course have to stop and take photo with at the kennebunk service station with the moose. I have many of these over the years. I can’t believe odin is up to his antlers.
just four more hours to go!
very necessary before 8 more hours on the road!
we swung through grand rapids, michigan to pick up odin’s cousin evelyn! I can’t tell if they are excited.
now 11 hours of driving! AND NO STOPPING TO GO TO THE BATHROOM!
