Bath #HydeJourney Camping Trip
by Susa Breese ’17

A group of students went sailing on magnificent Eastwind schooners in the nautical harbor of Boothbay.

For two hours they enjoyed the cool sea breeze and the pleasing sights of the surrounding waters and islands.

In the middle of our journey, we saw bald eagles in the trees across the water. One adult and one adolescent that was still in its nest.

Some got to help hoist the sails as we learned about the history of the schooners and some nautical knowhow from our host.

Others went down into the large, luxurious cabin to avoid sea spray and rain.
