Re: Skills dept. 3rd

My childcare day was switched this week so I might be able to attend. Thunderstorms predicted but maybe done by 5. Hoping to see you all, and practice some skills, weather permitting.

Re: Is Windmill point open to non-residents? Parking?

Don't do it. I called the Hull police department a few weeks ago to clarify the situation. They said NO non-resident parking, you WILL be ticketed an HOURLY fee. I asked if there was a time limit for this restriction - did they intend to lift it at some particular time. They said, yes, when the pand...

Re: Is Windmill point open to non-residents? Parking?

No. It has not been open for some time - only for ferry parking. There were a few spaces at the very end for short-term parking, but everything past the Nantasket Beaches is posted for residents only now.

Re: Local Info, Hingham Parknig

I've never had to go home because I couldn't park there. I also checked out the launch site on the Drif...
