Fishing Out the Dock!
What's your favorite summertime activity? Mine would be either swimming with friends or paddling out on the water in a nice little canoe. If you're in the same boat, I've got good news: Dartmouth's got it! During the warmer months, students and members of the Hanover community can make the short walk to the Connecticut River, only about 10 minutes from the Green, and hop in a boat for a relaxing trip down the river. The water gets colder as chillier months arrive, when campus is filled with beautiful piles of snow, ice skaters on Occom Pond, and activities like Dartmouth's Winter Carnival! With this annual progression, there comes a time when we must lift the dock out of the water before the freeze. And this year, I got to help out!
The dock removal went something like this: we disassembled the floating dock piece by piece, members paddle boarded them to the stairs, and a team lifted them out of the water before stacking them next to the boathouse. As a prize for getting the dock out, we had a delicious Ledyard feed! What is that, you ask?
