Les Cheneaux Islands: Land of Wooden Boats

The Les Cheneaux Islands 
("Cheneaux" is French for "channels") 
abound with protected waterways that have called to boaters for centuries.

There is a recent history here (in the last century), connected to the classic wooden boats like this Chris Craft model.

There are many shops in this area that build and/or restore wooden boats.

It's nice to see the classics still afloat.

So shiny, you can take a selfie in it!

The Annual Les Cheneaux Antique Wooden Boat Show is August 9, 2014.

This month I explored this area using four different types of boats and, of course, hiking.
