|Leaving York Harbor|
it was practically a cake walk. Leaving York Harbor took a little extra time, as I was asked to speak to the sailing class at the Agamenticus Yacht Club. I love the questions children ask, like "How do you pee?"
I only stayed one night with my great hosts in Cape Neddick, because I wanted to get into Portsmouth before the cold front moves through. And of course I was still recalling the huge surf and wrecked boats of the last time I paddled this section of coast. Here's the reality of paddling today up the mighty Piscataqua River...

There was a group of Rotarians with flags and bouncing children to welcome me to New Castle Island.
