July 24 UMass Lowell history paddle on the Merrimack River

Joyce and I had a lovely time joining about a dozen other paddlers led by the UMass Lowell Kayak Center along the Merrimack River. We were fortunate that lightning and storm clouds left the area so we could launch our boats. My favorite part was paddling through a short section of channelized river tributary by the light of our bow lights and then noticing the stone work with some added help from my phone's light. Even had my dad along for the adventure. I hope I can return and do a longer exploration of the channel system by daylight soon. It was refreshing to see such a robust and vibrant place after an early spring visit to purchase my current kayak. Really hope that a few for whom it was their first time or two on the water have caught the bug. Highly recommend getting out with this group if you have the opportunity!
