The Boston Kayaker and wife just launched on the Pemigewasset Lake.


We turned right from the ramp and will circle the lake counter-clockwise.





We will be leaving my sister-in-law to practice her paddle close to the ramp.

We decided to veer left to approach the island in the middle of Pemigewasset Lake.








Now we are paddling away from the island southwards to be close to the shore.
