It started out looking like a cloudy/rainy day but Mother Nature came through again for our first kayak trip of the season. Sixteen enthusiastic club members showed up for a relaxing yet long paddle on the Mystic River.
Three miles of beautiful scenery, with lily pads in bloom, brought us to the lower Mystic Lake where we enjoyed a cool breeze while we explored the locks, beautiful lake front homes, and beaches. On the river we saw blue herons, ducks, geese, a family of swans and one very aggressive “male” swan, protecting his cygnets.
Most of us stayed around for a picnic lunch and everyone expressed how enjoyable the paddle was.
Looks like a keeper.
