At Gardner Lake on Route 354 in Colchester CT.
Trip date is July 2018.
Today's kayak buddy is the Boston Kayaker's wife.
Just launched on Gardner Lake. Paddle to the right.
The plan is to circle Gardner Lake counter-clockwise.
Just rounded the corner and now facing northwards.
That island is a state park all by itself.
Will continue to follow the shore on my right.
The resident ducks of Gardner Lake.
The Hopemead State Park beach.
On left is the northeast corner of Gardner Lake.
Pivot to the right.
Looking south from the north end of Gardner Lake.
Paddling westwards to the other side . . .
Landing for a short break.
Paddling southwards now with the western shore on right.
I can see the landing green area.
Looking behind me . . .
