Round Island Anchorage - Hiking on the Islands

We had our usual morning fog but it seemed to clear late morning so we headed out into the bay with the goal of reaching Mackarel Cove on Swans Island but the further east we sailed, the more dense the fog became. We became separated from the Bunches and Zeisings in their boat in the fog and when we finally joined up we decided to cut our sail short and anchor in Merchant's Way near Round Island. The two nearby island are owned by the state and open for hiking and exploring. With Lance now on board, we also needed a place for him twice a day so it was convenient too.
Liz guided the rowboat with her hands since the rower could not see where he was going.
