At the access to Blackstone River on Oak Street in Uxbridge MA.
The Boston Kayaker just launched on Blackstone River.
With me are my dogs Saco and Sebec.
From the launch, paddling north upriver.
Approaching the Hartford Avenue bridge.
Just north of the bridge is this pond-like portion of the Blackstone River.
A blue heron on the banks of the Blackstone River.
Narrowing into the river it is.
The current is getting strong here.
At this point, I turned around as I cannot paddle against the current anymore.
Just turned around. Now paddling south downriver.
Much easier paddling with the slow current.
Now approaching the arched bridge and the takeout.
Round trip paddle time is 1 hour 14 minutes.
