The town landing was a busy sea kayak launch site Monday morning, July 29. Ten teen campers with a couple of Chewonki Wilderness Trip leaders made their departure on a Maine Island Trail trek that will take them to Monroe Island off Owls Head for the first night; east to Vinalhaven for the second; Merchants Row for the third and; and a final leg to Mt. Desert Island.

Heading out for a shorter paddle were six kayakers, who arrived in vehicles with New York license plates and planned to visit Long Cove and the islands around Tenants Harbor.
