There are many ways to get to Pleasant Bay and one of them is by paddling down the Namequoit River in Orleans. This kayaker was enjoying the last part of her trip out to the bay along the quiet and winding river. #orleans #namequoitriver
The kayak racks at Hemenway Landing are starting to fill up with kayaks and canoes. Pretty soon it will be warm enough to take that much-anticipated paddle out into Nauset Marsh!
We saw this interesting kayak that had washed up by Nauset Marsh the other day. We wondered how long it’s been out there and where it’s been. I bet it has lots of stories to tell…
Hemenway Landing is a great launching spot if you want to paddle Nauset Marsh. These kayaks were all lined up and ready to go!
Such a pretty day… and the waters were calm.
Phil and I used to kayak to Monomoy Island from Stage Harbor in the early 2000s, before the Great Whites came. There were always lot of seals about but you never had to worry back then. Our favorite place to stop for a picnic lunch was on the inside of South Beach, a stretch of beach that was miles long extending from Chatham almost to Big Monomoy Island.
I was so surprised to see South beach a few days ago with signs that said, “Do not walk on sandbar.” This beautiful beach that was soooo long was now only a tiny little sandbar. The Atlantic Ocean had breached the beach and finally swallowed it all up, except for this little piece. Wow!
