Lower Point Judith Pond - July 29, 2013

Snug Harbor
After a quick cup of coffee, I put my boat in the water at the dock near the cottage and decided to paddle south along Great Island to the Port of Galilee.  The sun came out briefly as I was heading out, and then dark clouds rolled back in.

Great Island is about 2 miles long and 1/2 mile wide, and full of summer cottages.  I headed south and stopped along Snug Harbor to watch the the boats heading down to the Breachway in Galilee.

The Breachway connects the Harbor of Refuge with the Point Judith Pond.  The Breachway was completed in 1910, and the harbor at the mouth of the pond was dredged and a dock constructed in 1935 to create a port for Rhode Island's fishing industry.  After snapping a few pictures and enjoying the scenery, I paddled back to the cottage.
