My younger son and I kayaked the Penobscot River from the public boat ramp in Hampden to the outlet of the Kenduskeag Stream (here is a map
We started out in a relatively natural setting and observed a bald eagle and several immature bald eagles in a nest while still in Hampden. Once we turned a corner, however, the river quickly became industrial and commercial along its shores. We made it north past the Darling's Waterfront Pavilion and were treated to Chris Stapleton doing a sound check before his concert and then a live band outside of Sea Dog Brewing.
|It was a great day for kayaking.|
|On the right upper branches of the tall center tree sits a bald eagle. The nest was nearby off-camera.|
|There are a number of man-made islands along the river.|
|We aren't really sure what this facility is but there was a tugboat and a large barge.|
