Last Sunday, May Day, I did my first kayaking of the season with Dale and Steve. The wind was very strong--bracing. Kayaking on a lake or river would have been very challenging and probably not very fun. Dale had a great suggestion to launch at Muddy Pond and paddle up Potters Brook.
Great idea! A lot less wind, no bugs and, with no leaves on the trees yet, we could see back into the woods.
The water is so high this time of year, we were able to paddle all the way to Rt. 95.
Steve checked out just where we were along the highway.
We had heard loons; finally, once back at the cars, we saw some.
A perfect first kayak of the season!
