Round Island on Lake Winnipesaukee - August 10, 2013

This tandem kayak worked out great
Michelle and I got out for a short kayak trip at Round Island on Lake Winnipesaukee. Yes, you read that right – a KAYAK trip.  We were visiting our friend Bob on the island.  I left my canoe at home, but Bob had a tandem kayak that we could use.

Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest lake in NH and the third largest in New England after Lake Champlain and Mousehead Lake.  It is approximately 21 miles long 9 miles wide covering 69 square miles.  Round Island is one of approximately 263 islands on Lake Winnipesaukee.  At 47 acres it is one of the larger islands on the lake and it has been in Bob's family for over 100 years.

There was a slight wind from the northeast blowing up 1-foot rollers, so Michelle and I stayed close to shore at the southern end of the island.  After a short paddle, we decided to take a break and enjoy the beach – good decision.
