Thimble Islands Paddle
A few weekends ago Steve took Julie and me to the Thimble Islands in Branford for a great paddle. We went past Great Island where we were lucky enough to visit when we were little with the Platt Nature Center.

Another GREAT Paddle
The group today includes Russell (green), Steve (yellow), Julie (orange) and Alison (blue).
Here is our returning special guest Alison.
We splashed at the CT River Estuary behind the Deep River marina.
Julie had a great idea to start a Kayaking Club, but we can only accept members that have a different color kayak. We are currently recruiting for pink, purple, brown, and red.
Onto the river...
Stopped for a picnic lunch just past the Essex Boat Club.

Exploring Cedar Lake
We packed the kayak into the bus and went in search of an adventure!
George is ready for some fishing, as I head off to paddle the lake.
This little guy needed some help.
These steps led down to the water from the cemetery.
Here are some more steps that have deteriorated and have been covered up. You can make out three steps if you look closely.
Life is good.

Sunday Paddle- My First Eagle
Going out for paddle on a wonderfully brisk fall day!
All bundled up and ready to go!
This is the first eagle I've photographed in the wild. I paddled up as close as I could, which was to the shore of the spit of land this tree is on (in North Cove, Essex); I was about 20 yards from the base of the tree.

A Paddle with Alison
On a windy and sunny day last weekend, Alison and I went for a great paddle around Essex. We dropped in North Cove and paddled our way over to Middle Cove.
Once securely on land... we went across the street to the Black Seal to reward ourselves with beer and yummy food. Our original plan to paddle back to the car after lunch(against the wind), was soon abandoned, and we instead walked back to the car and went to pick up the boats where we left them. Good times!

Sunday Afternoon in a Canoe
This is Abby! She loves canoe rides.
She likes the ducks,
although neither stay for very long.
Turtles are harder to find, but they stay until you put them back.
Watch out for the low bough!
On our way...
to our secret spot.
