Mrs. Cmaylo’s excellent adventure

Scraper backMrs. Kathy Cmaylo, teacher at Consolidated School in Kennebunkport is an avid Kayaker. She loves to visit the islands in Cape Porpoise Harbor and take photographs of the treasures she finds there. In August of 2008, something tapped against her leg as she stepped out of her boat onto Green Island aka President George H.W. Bush Island.  She gave the artifact to the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust.  They have teamed up with the Maine State Museum to do some archeological investigation on several of the islands in Cape Porpoise Harbor.   For more information, see Hunt for Stage Island Fort  and  Desperate Letter from Wells
