    Thanks for posting the photos, Jeff. Great shots of the moon. As you can tell from the photos, lots of people and watercraft. Alan Heavner said it was the most he's had at a sunset paddle, around 100. A bonus is that we got free ice cream at a shop in Milford.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Bill. If we can get one, we'll be there.

    I just called Heavner's about renting a kayak for this Sat. They will need a few hours to count and see if any are still available. Demand is very high.
