Sunday, September 28th was another great Autumn day for a kayak trip. Mascoma Lake is a short drive from my place in Lebanon, which made it a good choice for an afternoon paddle.
Although the foliage was near the peak of color, it felt like summer again. Needless to say, there was lots of boat traffic on the lake. To avoid the traffic I headed to the mouth of the Mascoma River.
It seems the ducks had the same ideas as I did about finding a quiet corner of the lake to relax in the sun.
Several were feeding nearby as I drifted around on my kayak.
After a while I paddled under Shaker Bridge to the “small” section of the lake. I got to watch a young couple playing with their dog on the shore.
That dog was a great jumper and swimmer!
I paddled back over to the boat landing and sailboats hoping some people were going for an afternoon sail.
I was in luck and was able to watch one boat leaving the landing area.
A sailboats gliding across the water is really nice to watch with the foliage in the background.It was another great afternoon of paddling on the water.
