9 hour town meeting (with 45 minutes off for lunch)

The day was off to a weird start as we boarded the boat to Great Cranberry. Buckets of mystery meat. Eeewww.


The mystery meat was identified as coyote bait. (Which is still pretty mysterious if you ask me.) It did not get off the boat with us at Great Cranberry.


A boat full of voters from Islesford heads to the big island.

A lot of people took the 10 minute walk to the Fire House where the meeting was held. A good chance to stretch the legs.

Our Town Clerk, Denise, gets ready to start the meeting, then asks for nominations for Moderator.

When we vote by written ballot, we use this cool old wooden ballot box. I wish I knew the history of it.

We finally finished business and adjourned at 6:15 p.m. Even though I want the hour back that I gave up yesterday for Daylight Saving time, the light was beautiful as we walked back to the boat.

And, we saw a barred owl.

All in all it was a good day. A good one, but a long one.
