DAYBREAK AT THE JONES RIVER SALT MARSH

Happy Late Summer!

Jones River Salt Marsh Gloucester copyright Kim SmithI hear lots of unhappy exclamations that summer is ending. No need to despair, the last day of summer is September 21st, still five weeks away. We’re just coming into the most atmospheric and beautiful season of all–September and October being two of the best months anywhere in New England–especially on Cape Ann!

Busy day on Saturday

Rick and I went to the Rotary Breakfast, the Waterfront Festival and of course Kayaking from Corliss Landing down the Annisquam to Little River and back.  Coming back from Little River and coming onto the Annisquam River the tide was changing and also the wind.  At times going backwards.  Lots of exercise and building muscle on the arms.  Love it.
