I took my first kayaking trip of the year today, exploring Souadabscook Stream between Big Road and Hermon Pond. The weather was in the mid 60's and mostly sunny. I put in at the privately owned boat launch off of Bog Road. There is a $1 fee for launching here which I gladly pay to support keeping the launch open to the public.
In addition to the stream, I decided to explore what appeared to be a canoe trail connecting Hermon Pond to two smaller ponds (see map below). However, the southern pond felt like it was right in someone's backyard, and the north end was blocked off.
During my trip I observed a bald eagle and heard a loon calling out.
Here is a map
of my trip.
