Nice pictures and nice company as well !

I see the very photogenic bird is a Plover (not a solitary sandpiper...should have put my glasses on...)

Wonderful day, wonderful rain. I hear a rumor that Squam Lake is surrounded by mountains. Could that possibly be true?!

Thanks to everyone - and especially to Doug for arranging a memorable paddling day.

Thank you Doug and Scott for the great pictures! Squam Lake is one of those beautiful places that everyone should paddle. Even though the weather looked gloomy from the photos, I never felt that way out on the water. Perhaps that was due to the location or perhaps due to the great group of paddlers. Doug, thank you for organizing a great trip!

Glen ... We blew it, we should have just thrown some of that nice split oak into our hatches and had a nice warm campfire on the island at lunch time :th_thCampingSmiley: .

I'd like to add my thanks to Doug for posting this trip. I had hopes for the power of my umbrella to ward off the rain but, alas, now know that it only works on salt water.

How did everyone get dry so fast?

Hard to believe a day wandering about in the rain with clouds obscuring distant views could be enjoyable, but it was on many levels. A "thank you" to Doug for posting and a "thank you" to all for making the paddle enjoyable, interesting, and fun. The pictures capture the mood and scene very well indeed.

I am so jealous that I did not do this trip. I woke up to rain pounding on my roof so I called Doug to cancel. He told me there was little or no rain where he was so I got my boat on the car and off I drove to Squam. Unfortunately, Somerville was having the Honk Festival with a road race that blocked my neighborhood's streets. I drove down my street only to be blocked for half an hour which would delay my arrival at Squam until 11- I was trapped like a rat.

Next time......

I think I agree about photo# 43.

The "rain or shine" posting was a good call:

"If you don't go,

you won't know"

Great photos etc. Thanks for posting.
