Grindstone Island Destination Row
Join us for a morning of skiff rowing and lunch on Grindstone Island. Participants will meet at the Event Tent at the Museum at 9:00 a.m. From there we will be ferried to Grindstone Island where ABM’s traditional St. Lawrence rowing skiffs will be waiting for us. We will row across Aunt Jane’s Bay to Long Point where we will disembark for a short walk around the point, followed by a picnic lunch on the porch of the summer cottage of Caroline and Ken Larson. After lunch rowers will be ferried back across the channel to the Museum. Experience the beauty of the St. Lawrence in a manner reminiscent of the last century.
Note: Participants must be able to row for approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Please contact the Museum if there is any question about the level of physical exertion required.
