Brooke and Danielle attempted to make ice cream with the ice cream ball we purchased at Cabelas. Check these out a http://www.cabelas.com/. You put the ingredients in the center, ice and rock salt in the outer chamber and roll the ball around for about a half hour and you have fresh yummy ice cream. That is unless you have Danielle and Brooke make your ice cream. There is this little thing called reading instructions. They said they read them but after a half hour their ice cream was still watery. I opened the lid and tasted the liquid on the top. You probably can guess...it tasted like salt. I asked them, "Where did you put the salt?". They both answer, "In with the cream". I then explained that the salt goes is the outer chamber with the ice. They both said, "We were kinda wondering why ice cream had so much salt in it". We rowed over to the van and went out for ice cream instead. While at the ice cream shop the girls talked with an older man from the area (so much for my "Don't Talk To Strangers" speech) and they told him we were going to go to the beach tomorrow. He suggested the local favorite Pemequid Point in Bristol Maine, http://pemaquidpoint.org/.
We got up early on Day 14 to make our way there. We should have taken this trip on the day before when it was hot and muggy because now the weather was colder and foggy, but it's all part of the adventure.
See they were troupers, even in the fog.
It had a little museum that pretty much just made Brooke and Danielle chuckle even more. Brooke took these pictures of ....
We went shopping at the local shoppes and picked up some beautiful silver jewelery. We even found our road trip ring. Brooke, Danielle and I all have the same 3 clover ring which signifies the 3 of us and Sam is the band that holds us together.
We headed back to the island and we decided to be rebels. We washed our hair with regular shampoo and conditioner in the lake. We were not being nature conscious...but wow did that feel good.
On Day 15 we hung out at the island, sun bathing, swimming and taking it easy. At night we began the process of packing and paddling everything over to the van. We were able to get everything packed except for our clothes and food. I creatively wrote about our experience on the island which is a really nice place...but not something I would look forward to doing again. I miss running water way too much.
