Roque, Day 2...

We woke up looking out over the sand beaches and realized that we had to stay another day. Machias Bay and other points downeast could all wait for another time. The weather was perfect, the sun was shining, and the dogs could use more swim time. So onto the dinghy and out to the beach we went. Plenty of stick fetching ensued.

We came across some kayakers and another trawler from Belfast, Maine. Other than that, we were alone on this huge beach.

In the afternoon another yellow lab showed up. Needless to say, great fun was had. Dylan is always on the lookout for another dog to chase him and this "local" dog fit the bill nicely. We figured he lived on the other side of the island where there is a family compound owned by the owners of the island.

By the time our local dog friend left, everyone was pretty tired out.

Oh yeah, today was my 50th birthday too...
