On my right is a nice looking beach that we decided to land on and take a break.
After our break, I launched Gokul and gave him a few minutes of head start.

Same picture as above. Cropped to magnify the turtles.
I can see the next bridge . . .
Looking back (south).
Boston Road bridge (Route 3A / Route 129). 4th bridge of 5.
Remnants of an old bridge I am guessing.
Pollard Street bridge. The last of our 5 bridges.
After passing under this 5th bridge, take out should be in 15 minutes or so.
This last stretch after the bridge has these boulders and rock islands.
I am about to land on my right. The dam is just 20 feet+ in front of me.
