River Bend Farm with the BVPC – June 19, 2012

Had a good time yesterday with the Blackstone Valley Paddle Club at River Bend Farm in Uxbridge.

The river was at a nice level – 2.8 feet, 525 cfs in the Northbridge gage – fluid but not particularly difficult.  I think it had dropped a little from when I scouted this section on Saturday.  We had about 30 boats - the largest group so far this season.

Ranger Chuck joined us on this trip and he gave a nice talk on river reading and river skills.  We would need those skills as we worked our way down the twists and turns in the river section.  We had two swims, but nothing serious.  Stopped for ice cream at Pirates Cove - can't beat that.
