At the Governor John Notte Memorial Park on Route 7 in North Providence RI.
Trip date is August 2019.

Just launched from the road side on Wenscott Lake. Veered right.

Will circle Wenscott Lake counter-clockwise. Approaching the public beach.

The pedestrian bridge and the top of the Wenscott Lake dam.

Wenscott Reservior Dam viewed from the other side.

The public beach.

I can see a fountain on the lake.

Looks like there is a wedding going on here near the fountain.

Past the fountain.

Another public access to Wenscott Lake.

Continuing to follow shore line on right.

Waterlillies on this corner of Wenscott Lake.

In front is the inlet water coming in from West River.

I will check if I can paddle into West River . . .

To much vegetation to paddle into West River. Will now turn around.

Still following the shore on right.

Another access point at Route 7.
