Little River Solitude

Posted by | August 3, 2012 | Filed under: Program Activities

Sue Bickford and I had the pleasure of spending a couple of hours on the Little River yesterday with a group of six women visiting from Montreal, Maryland, Virginia, and New Hampshire. They all registered for our public kayaking program, piloted last summer with rental boats and new this year with a fleet of our own (thank you Old Town Canoe & Kayak, Betsy Stevens, and Mark Klys for your amazingly generous donations!). We paddled upstream amongst the salt marsh grasses and birds, and then enjoyed the shade provided by overhanging oaks, maples, and pines that provide a vital forested buffer zone along the river's edge. What a peaceful, lovely trip we had!
