The group walked the Shell Mound Trail, avoiding the plaza area which was under water from the storm. The new interpretive panels were in place, except for the last one on the fishing pier. After the walk, as the clouds rolled in, folks gathered in the only wind-sheltered spot . . . the entrance to the outhouse . . . for hot tea and cookies before going out on the windy pier and hoping, unsuccessfully, for the clouds to part.
Next year will be even better.
