Kayaking The Concord

The Concord River

Yesterday was hot, humid and overcast.  We decided to take the kayaks out to the Concord River.

We packed up the kayaks and some lunch, drove to Bedford, put in, and headed toward Concord.  This was our first time paddling against the current, and there was a breeze in our face, so it was a bit more work than we anticipated.  Still, we paddled for about an hour and a half before stopping for lunch.  After eating we paddled a bit more before deciding we had enough and turning around for the more leisurely paddle back.

This part of the Concord River is very slow moving (which is good), but it's mostly conservation land so there's not much to see (which is not as good).  We saw a few ducks, geese and a few other birds, but that was pretty much it for the wildlife.

It was fun, quiet, and good exercise, even if not much in the way of sightseeing.  Overall, a nice way to spend part of a Sunday.
