How many bees does it take to stop two kayakers from enjoying a day on the water? We often hear from our members that they enjoyed a particular hike or paddle on our land. David Oakley’s and Dianna Masto’s day of mishaps at Amy’s Park is a perfect demonstration of the real devotion of our members to visiting our preserves and en- joying the great outdoors. According to David, it was a perfect August morning for their visit to Amy’s. There were no threatening clouds, no emergency emails from his office. Just a perfect day. After an unsuccessful first attempt to carry their two kayaks inside their Toyota High- lander, they switched tactics and tied them to the roof. With the last knot pulled tight, they set out from Arcady to Bolton.
