The Boston Kayaker just launched on Point Judith Pond.
It is very cloudy.
With the odd shape of the shores of Point Judith Pond, my usual follow-the-coastline circumnavigation will not work here . . .
Towards the center of the picture is the channel out of the launch cove.
This peninsula on right separates the launch cove.
Out of the launch cove, continuing my southerly direction.

I decided this as far south as I will go and pivoted to my right.
Now close to the western shore, the beaches off Succotash Road.
Another right pivot to turn northwards.
