After a few short weeks of being in Maine I bought a ukulele. A month later, I was performing in my first concert with the Puffin Pluckers. This ragtag group of volunteers and staff that all share two things in common - a love for Hog Island and a good time. We strummed, we sang, we had performances on a boat, in a dining hall, and in the Fish House. The set list was upbeat and the audience was forgiving.
Hog Island isn't my first time living on a remote island a stone's throw off the coast. Jekyll Island in Georgia will always be my first island living but Hog Island has wiggled its way into my heart and I must admit, I'm looking forward to more ukulele, more singing, and more fun times to be had on the Maine Coast.
