Comments:
I arrived on the 11:30 boat, and after settling in walked the western side of the island first south checking the south end of the meadow, then road to west that dead ends; returned to main road south to Underhill trail east to connector up to Horn Hill back north along east side of Meadow anthem up to areas by Ice Pond, only briefly checking out Cathedral trail. Late in the day I was joined by Will Russell. He and I walked south to Lobster Cove via Mooring Chain, then back north ending along road by Tribbler and then Wharf Road. Partly cloudy with lots of sun; 49-52, light NNE to start then shift S strengthening and ending SSE gentle breeze.
