Everyone, Remember Where We're Parked

You've probably seen this photo by Nancie Battaglia but you may not know the story behind it. Two years ago today, September 24, 2011, about 2,200 paddlers showed up on the shores of the central Adirondack town of Inlet, New York (population, 400) not only to set a new Guinness World Record, but to raise money for research and awareness of breast cancer prevention. They raised over $80,000. The official tally was 1,902 boats, forming the largest raft of canoes/kayaks in the world. You can read more about the kayaks and the cause here.
