A Glorious Day out of Odiorne Sat 6/27

Recommended Posts

Nine of us - Joe B, Janet L, Lorrie and Phil Allen, Mike H, Sue H, Liz B Jim S  and me - set out in getting-to-low-tide Odiorne launch mud for a jaunt to Rye Harbor and back.  Thanks to Liz, we knew we needed to make our launch parking reservations expeditiously because they did sell out, and even though the lot was never full, they did not let folks without a reservation in.

NOAA was its unreliable self.  Predicted morning SSW winds of 5-10 with 1-2 foot seas increasing to 10 kts with gusts over 15 never materialized.  The day was one of those strangely magical ones:  mostly windless with overcast skies bleeding into flat gray water that had that almost oily look...

but with surfable waves at Wallis Sands and many rock feature to amuse those who wanted to play in them.

We pulled into Rye Harbor for lunch.  Alas, in the age of socially distanced paddling, we chose to avoid the wonderful food stands (no lobster rolls!  No picnic tables!) and landed on the rocky beach by the jetty for a socially distanced lunch.

Then it was a leisurely paddle back

with a number of wave and rock stops.

All in all, it was an excellent day on the water with friends.  We were all happy Odiorne is open once again.  I look forward to going back!

Thanks, Prudence, for a wonderful day!.  As an FYI, the parks are following social distancing protocol and only filling the lots half way to limit the number of people allowed in.
