SEPTEMBER 11, 2007
Thanks to GPS we were able to easily move in the fog from Mistake Island to Mud Hole.
Mud Hole is a well protected little slot of an anchorage on the east coast of Great Wass Island. It is difficult to enter, but once inside, you are in a completely natural little fjord lined with granite and spruce, with many kinds of birds as company. Best of all, Mud Hole gives you access to the Nature Conservancy's Great Wass Island Preserve and some wonderful trails through mossy forests and across the granite ledges of Eastern Bay.
One can only enter Mud Hole on a near high rising tide as there is a ledge guarding its entrance. Once inside, you remain until the next tide.
It was a rainy, foggy day so the majority of the day was spent inside.
