After the fireworks we moved further into Tod and there was eough room to anchor without a stern tie.

our cat came along with us....she did great but earned a new name "captain Boltor" because she tried to bolt a few times early on. She became very comfortable and freely explored everywhere on board.

I forgot to mention a 2 day stop at portland island...my son Miles caught a sand shark. My wife and I hiked all the way around the island and enjoyed the 1000 year old midden beaches on the south end. Those people sure ate a lot of clams.
