At the Stoddard Hill State Park launch cove off Route 12 in Gales Ferry CT.
The Boston Kayaker launching into the Thames River.
Just launched. My son at the railroad bridge taking photos.
Ducking to fit under the railbridge.
Coincidentally, a train is coming by over the railbridge that I just crossed under.
Paddling south on a one-way trip on the Thames River.
Looking to my right at the western shore.
A buoy extending into the water. I suppose they do not want boats to come closer.
Some industrial behemoth. It was actually operating based on what I heard when I passed by.
I can see the I-95 bridges a few miles in front of me.
The Yale University boathouse on my left.
I can not resist beaching on this sandy spot.
Looking at the west shore of Thames River.
Back on the Thames River.
The start of the naval base is on my left.
After this photo was taken, a naval patrol boat accosted me and told me to "kayak on the other side of the river".
Complying with the patrol boat, paddling away from the easter shore towards the middle of the river.
Now in the middle of the river paddling southwards.
The Submarine Force Museum.
Includes an old submarine turned museum on the water.
Landed under the I-95 northbound bridge.
Road sign to the Thames River access under the I-95 bridge.
