My Book!!

One opportunity that the blog has brought me is the co-authoring of a guidebook, Paddling Southern Maine! It is something in which I take a lot of pride! My writing partner, Sandy Moore, and I have created a book with 54 amazing trips that are within about an hour of Portland! Out motto as we wrote the book was wanting to 'get people to spend the day on the water and not in their cars!'

If you want more information on our book please visit www.paddlingsouthernmaine.com. Sandy and I are available to attend/present various functions/events. Please email me at mainekayakgirl@gmail.com for more information!

Behind The Scenes with WMTW

Tomorrow, June 20th, WMTW is airing a special at 10:00 p.m. about summer recreation in Maine.  
Mallory Brooke reached out to Sandy, my co-author, and I about paddling and filming with us.  Of course the day we filmed was 95 degrees and HUMID, but it was still fun.  
We started at the Songo Locks then headed to Sebago Lake via Sebago State Park and then went to Tenny River.   We did quick stops at the locks and at the state park and then paddled Tenny River in its entirety.   

This was paddling up to the locks. 


The camera man getting a few intro shots of Mallory.  (Sandy in the background.) 

Going through the locks on a paddleboard, canoe,  or kayak is a very cool experience!  

The park ranger shared this image with me, it shows how the whole system works.  Brilliant!  

Paddling out to Sebago from the launch at the state park.  

Sandy getting ready for her interview at the sandbar! 



During her interview I was distracted by the texture in this wood.  




Paddling back to the launch.  

Right near that boat ramp on Crescent Lake. 

A pair of loons...they were looking for a place to nest.  We saw them in a couple of spots that were well protected. 

We made it to Panther Pond as the sun was going down.  

Mallory going through the culvert.

It was a fun experience!  I am excited for the show to air tomorrow!  
(Just keep in mind when I am on camera, it was a thousand degrees, humid, and I had been loading and unloading kayaks just before filming!! Ha!)
