CT: Fairfield County-Westport- Saugatuck River (Summer Kayaking)

There was a hot and humid heat wave at the end of June. I couldn’t go far so decided to try paddling at the Saugatuck River. I launched at the public launch site off of Elaine Road under 95.

It was such a beautiful paddle. It was cool on the river and I felt the few of us on the water were the luckiest group to include the geese!

There were so many geese I couldn’t count them or even capture them all in a photo.

The swans were watching carefully as they protected their young. It was not until I loaded the below picture that I saw the baby swan sleeping camouflaged by the rocks.

Made it to the small waterfall on the river – I heard some portage over to continue. I turned back from here with perfect timing as I heard folks singing from the Westport pavilion from the water!

The sky began to turn colors as the sun set and I loaded the kayak back on my car. Everyone else complained about the heat that evening. Not me! Great evening.
