Kayaking on Tispaquin Pond - in Middleboro MA

Rating: One Star - This pond is in cranberry country and the pond is surrounded by cranberry bogs (not visible from the pond itself). I had a pleasant paddle around this pond in just under 1 hour. There are occassional houses on the shoreline but still mostly greenery.

Paddle around Tispaquin

On Tispaquin Pond.

Just launched on Tispaquin Pond.

Paddling to my right. I will circle Tispaquin Pond counter-clockwise.

Now paddling northwards and will keep the shore to my right.

Fishing from a boat.

To the right of that birdhouse is the small northeasterly cove.

This cove looks like a dead end.

Continuing my paddle northwards.

In front of me is the northern end of Tispaquin Pond.

Continuing my counter-clockwise direction.

I am looking for any interesting inlet or outlet to explore.

This spot looks interesting . . .

I paddled into it but did not get very far. It turns out this is an outlet stream blocked by a small beaver dam where I can hear water flowing out.

Turned around and now looking south on Tispaquin Pond from the north end.
