Kayaking Otter Pond with ORFS

Tuesday, June 29: Another Tuesday, another gathering of ORFS (Outdoor Recreation for Seniors), this time on Otter Pond in New London, New Hampshire. It was HOT!!! I’m not sure quite how hot, but unpleasantly so. I started out by swimming before getting in the kayak, had an unintentional swim flipping the boat reentering after lunch, and dunked one last time before getting in the camper and driving away. And gee, I never overheated!

The Sheep Laurel is still blooming, splashing hot pink along the lakeside.
A float plane used to live at this house; I’ve not seen it for a couple of years, though.

That house really belongs in the Color Choices series, but I’m putting it here, instead.

It was great to be on the water, in the water, around the water on this very hot and humid day. I’m grateful to live in New England where we have lots of water for recreation, and kayaks, and good friends.
