Brooks Island

May 6, 2000

Paddling out from the Richmond Marina, we turned right and came to the old Ford Motor Assembly plant. Keith Menconi is contemplating its scheduled replacement by condominiums.                                
Dave and Dorita Menconi were eager to check it out! We all paddled under the plant, which is set on pilings over the water.                              
                              We used a large ship as a windbreak while paddling across the harbor to check out the future home of the next National Park, the old Liberty Ship assembly docks.                         
                              It started to sprinkle, but we were able to have a nice lunch on Brooks Island
