Both Kevin and Mary Lou have told me that Pooles Island is off limits, something to do with unexploded ordnance on the island. Thanks for the information.
The suggestion from Kevin, who sails the Welsford Navigator Slip Jig, is that we try to reach Still Pond Creek. Worton would work, he says, but Still Pond is prettier. Just from looking at the satellite photos, I agree that it looks like a nice place to spend an evening.
I've started packing clothes and sorting through the food, and I need to make a run to the hardware store today to pick up a few items for Spartina. The weather is nice for sailing, but I need to get ready for the trip.
