4th of July

We celebrated our Independence Day by paddling a section of the Pawcatuck River between Bradford and Ashaway (RI). This river is a mere 10 minute drive from our home. The Wood-Pawcatuck River System which feeds into the Atlantic at the border of Connecticut and Rhode Island is one of the most pristine rivers for paddling in New England. Most of the rivers are largely free of development and limited to an occasional canoe or kayak. What you will find this time of year are turtles sunbathing on fallen trees, egrets, blue herons, king fishers and yellow, pink and white water lilies.
