day trip: deer island
After a lovely and inspiring weekend in Seaside, Florida, Daniel and I weren’t yet ready to be away from the beach. So we made a day trip to Deer Island, just off the Biloxi beach, leaving behind holiday revelers for a quiet afternoon on the Gulf side of the island.
Daniel plans to transform our canoe into a sailing canoe by outfitting it with a mast, mainsail, lead boards, and out-rigging. (Apparently this can be and is done – you can even buy a kit, but Daniel is DIYing it.) This way, we can make it to Horn Island without having to train to row crew.
