An Evening Paddle with East Coast Outfitters

I can never get enough kayak paddling in. Stuff like work gets in the way. However, I did grab an opportunity to take my two daughters -in-law and head out for the Ladies Night Paddle with East Coast Outfitters recently.

I’ve been out with them before but I enjoy trying out new adventures such as this Ladies Night and it did not disappoint.

I love a leisurely paddle where I can take a moment to see, hear and smell what’s around me on the water. This is the ambiance I want others to experience in any outdoor venue-woods, water, whatever.


Although this paddle started off as a fast clip, we thankfully slowed down  to see herons, seagulls, ducks and even a  silky black mink darting along the glacial  erratics.

This is an area called the Rogues Roost-after the area’s role as a hiding spot for privateers,pirates and rum runners. It’s perfect with it’s 22 islands, sheltered passageways and rocky hidey holes.

We saw nary a pirate, but instead were treated to a gloriously red sunset. A fitting end to a  great paddle.
