This blog is about my adventures kayaking in Maine. The kayaking adventures I share here will be on calm bodies of water: lakes, ponds, streams, and rivers. The more time I spend kayaking, the more I love it. I am hoping this blog can provide people with new places to explore. I will try to offer directions to the places I go as well as sharing some pictures.

I have had a few chances to kayak so far this spring. I haven't been to any new places, yet, besides the places already listed... and thought I would share some pictures.
Here are some pictures from Sebago State Park (click link for previous post including directions.)
And the following shots are from Tenney Stream (Connects Crescent Lake and Panther Pond, click link to previous post and directions)
This is still one of my favorite spots to paddle, so quiet and peaceful. I saw, for the first time, otters, playing here this spring. Unfortunately my camera was not able to get any shots, but I will be returning and keeping my eyes open for them!
There are so many painted turtles here, I love it!
I had seen a goose on a nest here in years past and was not sure if I would get lucky but there she is! Please note, I have a new camera with an even closer zoom... I was definitely giving this beautiful bird its space, and encourage others to do so as well. I am out to enjoy nature, not to harass it, I value it too much.
This is one of my friends, who is now going to buy a kayak of her own!
