On Route 114 in Standish ME.
Trip date is July 2017.

On the roadside of Route 114 is this informal put in to a cove connected to Sebago Lake.

The Boston Kayaker and wife just launched on Sebago Lake from Route 114.

A couple of kayakers.

We are following the shore on our right to get to the main body.

Across that rail bridge is the main body of Sebago Lake.

Now on Sebago Lake.

Veering to our left northwards.

A powered boat on Sebago Lake.

Past the peninsula, the waters are now choppier.

After passing that peninsula on left, the waves got bigger and we decided to turn around.

Just turned around. Now facing south with Sebago Lake's (lower) western shore on right.

The water police!

Very clear waters. No wonder. They get their drinking water from this lake.

Now in the much calmer waters of the launch cove.

Landed. Paddle time is 1 hour 20 minutes.
