NY: Ulster County- Saugerties- Esopus Creek (Kayaking)

Had a nice paddle on the Esopus Creek in Saugerties. I launched at Saugerties Village Beach at 47 S Partition Street, NY.

The creek is along side Esopus Bend Nature preserve. A very easy flat water paddle.

There was also the ability to stop along the nature preserve along the way which provided a pathway along the creek.

The most fun I had was finding a stream to walk up from the creek. It’s now a new activity I call in stream walking :).

Always on the lookout for wildlife. There were several areas with stunning painted turtles to enjoy.

When I first took the above shot the light appeared to look like a welcoming heart. In the photo in may not be as clearly defined but I think it provides you with the idea and perhaps a touch of the feeling I felt as it welcomed me to cross the stream.

I returned to Saugerties Beach where I had launched and stopped for a snack and a drink before I went on to my next adventure. They were also renting kayaks from here as well.

From there I went to see Saugerties lighthouse and Falling Waters preserve. Lovely way to spend a day
