The kids and I decided early in the day that we'd need a dip in the ocean at lunchtime. At around 12:30 we stopped at Subway and then proceeded towards Ft. Foster, where we planned to eat our subs ("hoagies" for my PA brethren), get our feet wet, and then scurry back home. On the way to Gerrish Island we detoured to Ft. McClary. We were feeling reckless and fancy-free, and a deviation in plan was definitely in order. Plus we always drive by Ft. McClary (it's on the way to Ft. Foster), but have never been, and it was high time we checked it out!
Not a bad view to eat your sandwich by, huh? No beach for "dipping" and a little hazy for any great scenic photographs, but still fantastic.
Lots of beauty there. The ocean, the sailboats, the coastline, the old fort buildings, and even the wild grass...
...and the breeze felt wonderful!! As warm as it was inland (the truck said 88), we were completely comfortable thanks to the cool ocean breeze. ...and the ribs were good too...er..I mean JUMPING, yeah, the jumping was fun. Then we had ice cream and headed back home so that I could finish up my work day
