More IIE pics
At Isleford, the students had made an Earth Loom out of timbers. All the islands brought things to add to the loom, such as bark, grasses, sea weed, etc. The kids were encouraged to write on a piece of bark about the theme 'friendship' and what it meant to them. Ashley Bryan, a famous children's book writer/illustrator lives in Islesford and he opened our potluck dinner by reciting poems. We all joined in with gusto. On the ride home, we had to take the small boat from Islesford to Great Cranberry in order to take the Sunbeam, which couldn't dock in Islesford due to the winds.
