My work's outdoor club ventured out on kayaks this month, exploring the Penobscot River north of the Orrington boat launch.
We set out against the wind, tide and river current, paddling upriver until we felt ready to turn around. The return trip was significantly easier as we had the wind, current and tide all in our favor.
Along the way, we spotted eagles, cormorants and osprey, as well as a few large fish that jumped completely clear of the water.
Here is a map of our trip.
