It was the start of a new season for kayaking.  It was my second year with the kayak.  This winter a decision was made to start documenting my trips.  It would not only be for me but other people who want to experience the water also.  I went to fantastic place to lanch.  It was in Hampton Falls at the end of Depot rd.  There was no one else on the water.  Hampton river exists only on maps.  It is really a tidal area shaped like a river.  The tide was slowly going out.  On the right side we saw the Nuclear plant, an observation blind and some structure that  I don’t have a clue what it is.  As  got closer to Hampton Harbor the tide became swifter.  I turned around as I approached Hampton Harbor.  I had to row against some swift current.  It quieted down as I approached the finish line.  I smelled a fire burning as I neared the end.  I love smelling the scent of burning wood.  This was a great start of the season with more trips to come.
