Pictures and trip taken in August 2011.
Taylor's Landing on Route 138 in Kingston RI.
Getting ready to launch.
Off we go.
Cruising . . .
A family in a canoe. They have 2 small children in the middle of the canoe not seen in this picture.
We were happy paddling along until we hit this beaver dam about half into our planned route. :(
The dam created a two-fee drop. We can hear the water rushing thru this and leaking on the sides.
This beaver dam is not to be taken lightly . . .
We explored the sides of the river to see if there is an easy way around.
We decided to "advance in a different direction"!
Back to Taylor's Landing!
At our planned destination at Wordens Pond earlier in the day.
We left one car here in anticipation of doing a one-way trip from Taylor's Landing.
