On Sunday Rick and I decided to go kayaking down the Essex River out to Ipswich Bay. Had my small waterproof camera and was able to get a quick shot of an Osprey Nest. The color of the water with the marsh was amazing.
That’s Jones Creek, right?
Rick and I went out kayaking on Sunday, the sky was amazing with the fog rolling in. This was taken near the Hammond Castle.
Oh what a day
Rick and I put our kayaks in from the Stone Pier from Jones’ Pier and did some kayaking over to Wingersheek. What a beauty of a day on Saturday.
do you think you could post this?
Kayaking is a great sport, and a wonderfully graceful way to enjoy the outdoors. I notice many paddlers I see on Cape Ann hold the paddle upside down. To get the most power, and best aerodynamic response the straighter side of the blade should be on top (better approach for wind) and the curved part of the blade should be on the bottom- allowing more power to sweep through the water.
The attached photo is a good straight on view of the way to hold a paddle.
Enjoy the water!
Rick and I went out Kayaking on Wednesday and it was incredible. We are having so much fun exploring.
The Annisquam River offers pretty, protected paddling and acres of marshland to explore at high tide. Novices can find scenic and quiet paddling on the Jones River and in Lobster Cove. More adventurous kayakers can paddle into Ipswich Bay to visit sandy Wingaersheek Beach or the many rocky coves along Gloucester’s northern coast. Paddlers of all skill levels can enjoy this diverse and interesting area.
