Kayaking on the Connecticut River from Herrick’s Cove

Flowers in the garden at the restaurant where we retired teachers gathered for lunch today.

After lunch, three of us went to the Herrick’s Cove launch on the Connecticut River. It was quite windy, so we stayed along the more sheltered west bank, going south and then north. But first, we met Yarrow!

He is playing soccer with the biggest rock he could find at the boat launch! His person would throw it as far as he could, almost deep enough to require swimming, and Yarrow would use his paws to push and pull it in to shore. And again. And again. It looked like he would be happy to do that for hours, but his person had had enough, and they left. Then we were out on the water, enjoying a beautiful day.

Something, I don’t know what, had laid these egg cases on the rocks along the river.
