On Saturday Lauren and I finally went kayaking on the Androscoggin River. We have done this three or four times in the past but this is the first time we went since we have moved here. What has taken us so long? Oh yeah….all those other life events. It was a great day for kayaking and we did see one bald eagle with a fish in its talons as it flew off to build some distance between us.
Unfortunately there was one annoying group of kids, 20 or so, putting in around the same time we were with coolers of beer, bottles of Jaegermeister, a boom box, and mouths yelling the f-bomb every minute or so. Fortunately they were in canoes that kept tipping over and were moving slow enough that we were able to paddle ahead and out of earshot range. I just hope all the bottles and cans made it back to land.
It felt good to get on the river again.
