Thwarted again. The whale watch cruise was canceled because of the weather. Our backup plan was to walk one of the carriage trail loops. My goodness it was beautiful. Because of the fog, we didn’t get any grand views but the trail, the flora, the bridges, and the waterfalls were beautiful.
We saw hikers, bikers, and an equestrian. The cooler weather made for a pleasant hike. We met a woman who’s family has been coming to the area since the 1870’s. She shared some personal history with us. Her mother and brother were both born on the island. She says she is 70 and has been coming here for 71 years. Her mother was pregnant with her while visiting the island. Basically, the family is from Philadelphia and summered here and if that’s when you were to be born, then you were born here.
I have included a bunch of pictures below because I think the beauty of the trails is something to be shared.
We have still not been able to kayak even though we can put our kayaks in from our campsite. It has been very foggy and Regis thinks we would just go around in circles for an eternity since we don’t have a compass. He found a compass app for the cell phone, but it still doesn’t seem to be a good idea to kayak in the fog, much less in a place in which you are not familiar.
