belated trip report
I saw that meme about places one has slept in 2011, and instead of giving the rather short and mostly uninteresting list, I figured I'd finally post my pictures and story of going camping in Ipswich this past September.
I tend to pick up sporting-ish hobbies and discard them without accomplishing a whole lot; this is partly because I am competitive by nature, but not actually
very athletic, and partly because I am lazy. But I've wanted to go canoe camping for a long time, and finally managed to do so on our honeymoon. That was fun, so I wanted to do it again
, and also was going boating a bunch with saxifrage
so I idly started looking at canoes. One of the ones I liked best showed up used on Craigslist, and suddenly I had a boat.
So after a few paddles, I booked a night on Perkins Island on the Ipswich River, in the middle of the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary
And this is where the picspam commences, so ( follow me behind the cut for moreCollapse )
Next summer: as I said above, if anyone wants me to lead a group overnight on Perkins Island, I'd be happy to. It'd be kid-friendly and novice-friendly -- we wouldn't have
to start as far upstream as I did, which would avoid any possibility of dealing with downed trees.
And then I'm going to take my boat up to Maine and do a longer trip.This entry was originally posted at http://antimony.dreamwidth.org/350.html. Please comment wherever you prefer. Current Mood: accomplished
