I found a place to park on Towle Farm road. The kayak had to be carried through the woods and down an embankment. I got into the kayak and pushed off. The water was calm. It seemed so peaceful. I was taking my time. First I went up the river. The river was lined by trees on both sides. No houses could be seen. On my left was a rope swing for people to swing in the water. I went as far as I could (which was about 1/4 mile) and turned around. I
went under the Towle Farm road bridge. The lake continued. There was still heavy woods on both sides of me. However in between the trees there was homes. I continued and turned to the left. On the right of me was a field lined with trees. On the left was a cove with fisherman boating. It wasn’t long until I saw Route 95. I knew that was the end. There is a dam right before the highway. I watch the traffic for a while and then turned around back to the car. The pictures below shows the kayak going over the water, Geese along the water bank, launching the boat, rope to jump in the water, statue on a lawn. When I got back I felt that I had a most enjoyable time. However bringing the kayak up the banking was not as easy as bringing down.
