On High Road / Route 1A in Newbury MA at the Newbury Kayak Canoe shop.
Trip date is September 2019. We paid a parking fee to launch from the Newbury Kayak Canoe shop.

At the banks of the Parker River.
Today's kayak buddy is the Boston Kayaker's wife.
The Boston Kayaker just launched on the Parker River.
Good weather. Temperature very comfortable low 80sF.
From the launch, we turned left upriver.

East of the bridge is a marina.

A powered boat coming from the right fork.
We continued on the left fork.
At this point, I got tired and decided to turn around to paddle back.
Just turned around, telling my wife to also turn around for our return.
We are staying to the sides away from these motorized traffic.

We can now see the marina.
