Hey Kate, What time were you coming back through the gut? I was there, on the way out, at about 1:30 and it was wild getting across! We made it ok but then had a little trouble in the swirly water near Peddocks. I was wishing it was more than two of us and I can't imagine crossing that stuff alone. ...

I've done it a few times for camp-outs on the harbor islands, but not in the last couple of years. I don't park near the windmill though, I park at the far end of the municipal parking lot, as far from the windmill as you can get.
