Here is the 5th of 6 trip reports about the AMC Boston camping trip in Stonington. On the 4th of July, 2 more people arrived in the afternoon, bringing the total to 8 paddlers for the trips on the 5th. We broke into 2 groups of 4 and did a level 2 and a level 3 trip. I was on the level 3 trip and will describe it in the text that accompanies the pictures posted on Facebook listed below. Can't tell you anything about the level 2 trip because I've already forgotten what was described by those participants when we all went out to dinner that evening. I need pictures and GPS tracks to refresh my memory.
The level 3 trip was from the Old Quarry Campground out and around Marshall Island. The leader was Rick and the Co-leader was Dennis. There wasn't much time or need for breaks on this trip as we knew there were a good number of miles to cover. This trip had some fairly big 2 to 3 mile open water crossings. It was nice to get out and away from all the islands closer to Stonington for a change of pace. There were not as many lobster boats out there in the deeper water.
