Paddling the Pawcatuck river

My sister came by for a visit after a week of camping in Maine.

We spent an afternoon paddling on the Pawcatuck river 

which runs through the woods and marshes behind our house.

We saw herons and turtles and water snakes.

And a couple of beaver kits that were swimming near their lodge.

(Here's Porter after he swamped his kayak squabbling with Nico.)



  1. Sounds like an afternoon well-spent, Andy. And seeing beaver kits is cool. They are mighty cute. The water looks nice and high. Any portages?

    1. The river behind the dam in Bradford is deep for a couple of miles upstream -- so no portages this day. We'll get more ambitious as the summer progresses, I hope.
