Upper Point Judith Pond - July 28, 2013

Our cottage at Horseshoe Point
It was cold and grey for the first morning of our vacation, but the still water of Point Judith Pond drew me out.  

Our cottage is located at Horseshoe Point at the northern tip of Great Island in Point Judith Pond, or the Great Salt Pond as it is also known. Point Judith Pond is 4 miles long, 1 mile wide, and about 20 miles in circumference.  Across the water we looked out at Ram Island.

I decided to head north along Ram Island and into the Upper Pond.  The water was perfectly still except for the occasional motorboat.  Birds were plentiful - comerants, herons, egrets, seagulls and even a pair of osprey.  Other than a couple of fishing boats pulling out of the marina, I was the only one around.
