To start off the fall, we picked up right where we left off; Spectacle Island! Many people showed up on the windy Saturday morning to come out for a tour of the island. Between all of the hot chocolate and warm apple cider people were drinking, you could tell they were prepared for the weather. As soon as we docked the boat, everyone went their separate ways to explore, but we were still able to show everyone a great time on the island. The picture below shows an idea of how many people came to enjoy our free fall cruise.
Our great story teller, Norah Dooley always has a story that will put you on the edge of your seat. From scary ghost stories to swashbuckling pirate stories to old folktales- her stories will always put a smile on your face and leave you asking for another one. She came out to the island with us and not only did she tell stories but she also helped us to tell our own stories to all of the visitors. We had a lot of fun learning the game Two Truths and a Lie, each person says three facts about themselves or about what they did this summer. Two of them are true and one of them is a lie, then everyone has to guess which fact was a lie. The tourists seemed to really enjoy it and it was a fun way to get to know everyone.
Overall, as always, it was a great day at Spectacle Island and there were many smiles to prove it. Until next time, Preston.
