Some details for tomorrow's paddle on Belleville Pond: Meet at the boat ramp in Ryan Park (North Kingstown) at 9:30 for a 10:00 launch. At a minimum you must have a change of clothes in a waterproof drybag, but I strongly recommend either a wet suit or a drysuit since the water temperature will still be cold and there are not many easily accessible places on shore to change if needed. |
This will be a short, slow paddle around the pond, and we will poke into multiple little bays and inlets to explore. We'll likely see ducks, geese and herons. Near the end of our circumnavigation, if we're lucky, we may see alewives still coming up the fish ladder at the dam.
If you want to bring a lunch or a snack, we will probably wait until we return to the launch since this is a short paddle. Cindy and I are planning on visiting West Passage Brewery for lunch, which is nearby, and anyone is welcome to join us if they wish.
Hope to see you there!
