12 scouts and 7 adults took the ferry over to Block Island, RI for a day of biking and adventure. Scouts biked 15 miles as they explored the 10 square mile island. They saw seals, seagull nests and some offshore windmill power. Ice cream was enjoyed by all along with candy from Chapel Street sweets. And, some scouts braved the cold waters just below Mohegan bluffs before their return to the mainland.
