We All Have Our Reasons: #775

Recent “Epic Summer Sunday” photo album post:

Sunday morning, I got up early and hiked up Mt. Battie. Then swam in Lake Megunticook (no pictures but trust me, you don’t want to see me skinnydipping). Then breakfast at Boynton-McKay (and had them make a lunch for me to take). Then paddled three-plus miles to Mark Island. I had lunch on the beach and noticed that thunderheads were building just west of the Camden Hills. It’s just over an hour to paddle back, in good conditions, but it took almost two hours with wind and waves. I got to the outer harbor before rain started but it was pouring by the time I reached the ramp. There was some thunder but I never saw lightning.
