5th Annual Muscle Weekend -NSPN/MITA/SMSKN


Recommended Posts

Despite the disappointingly high number of 11th-hour cancellations and "no-shows", we managed to have the grandest time anyway.  Early Friday arrivers Greg, Yong, Sandy, Christian, Marcy, Barbara and I enjoyed the always-pleasant trip to Dix, most of us opting for the 25-minute stroll around the perimeter path, before weaving around the ledges and islets in the quiet archipelago.  An unanticipated octagonal "STOP" sign planted in one of the rocky ledges halted our progress to another beach break, so we opted for the direct course back to the campground, aided by the 10kn tailwind and swells.  Back at the group site we were happy to find Cath, Marty, Andy, and Pat setting up for the pot-luck, which delivered, as always, an exceptional array of culinary delights, to the backdrop of a rising full moon  No gill was left unfilled, and we retired early, without a fire to watch, or a worry to tend to.

Day 2 was a clone of Friday, and 9 of us headed to Port Clyde to partake of Kyle's trip to the beautiful island chain SWerly.  Using the lee of the islands when possible, we paddled close to Hupper, Teal, Stone, Seavey, McGee/Barter (between), and Thompson, before landing at the nice, partially protected MITA beach at _______.  After lunch and sunbath we hopped over to _______ to stretch our legs during a short hike.  Winds had apparently abated, so the group opted to straight-shot it to Hupper, via Shag Ledges.  

The smaller group of Marty, Sandy, Stu, Barbara, and Greg opted for a trip to Tenants.  Word on the street is that they didn't quite make it, opting for playing in the mud (X2?) instead.

Five of the group went to the "Waterworks" eatery, others dined by streetlight at camp, and still others left town.

By Sunday am, all campers were sent packing by the SCA, which failed to materialize.

Thanks to ALL who came out to play-I thoroughly enjoyed the time together!
