Exploring Maine’s many small lakes and ponds might be stimulating out of doors adventures. Lately, my spouse, Nancy, and I’ve endeavored so as to add extra to our paddling agenda. Small, slender our bodies of water with quite a few islands, coves and inlets which are habitats for quite a lot of birds and wildlife are significantly interesting to us.

The attraction was enough to justify buy of two flatwater kayaks we name “lake kayaks.” Our alternative was a pair of 12-foot Casco 120 solo kayaks. We’ve discovered them to be sturdy, snug vessels preferrred for reconnoitering each shallow constricted areas and open water. And, they’ve enough space for storing to hold virtually something wanted for a day journey.

Not too long ago, we’ve had the great fortune to discover Pitcher, Moxie and Runaround ponds. When our buddy Bruce Weik really useful Department Pond in Palermo, we have been obsessed with giving it a attempt.
