Kayakers: Rachel A., Elizabeth B., Maryann D., Marianne E., Jill F., Larry McC., Stephen P., Tom S., Daniel Y.
Weather was perfect, sunny in the mid-70's. We paddled approximately 3.5 miles up the river to the Lower Mystic Lake passing Blue Herons, swans, ducks and of course many geese. We even caught a few in flight.
Four hardy souls tried to make it to the dam only to find a portage area and a fish ladder. No way to get into the Upper Mystic Lake. We will have to save that for another trip.
After a 2 hour calm, peaceful paddle we found a shady spot to social distance and have a picnic. So nice to finally be able to catch up with people and enjoy the outdoors.
This is beautiful spot to kayak and it was a gorgeous day!
