Trip date is June 2012.
Popponesset Bay from Pirate's Cove.
Just launched. Started my trip at 9am. High tide is at 10:50am.
I paddled to my right southwards.
A mutual surprise when this duck surfaced from a dive in front of me.

I have reached the end of the navigable part of Mashpee River.

Now paddling downstream on Mashpee River.

Back to Popponesset Bay.
Walking back to my parking spot about a quarter of a mile up.
