Bungay River - July 10, 2016

Bill in the stern
The rain held off, and I got out for a quick paddle with Bill Luther on the Bungay River in Attleboro.  The Bungay is a tributary of the Ten Mile River.  It arises in Foxborough, and flows south about 7 miles until it joins the Ten Mile River in Attleboro. 

We put in at the Bungay River Conservation Area (88-160 Holden Street, Attleboro) and paddled upstream into a beautiful red maple swamp. There were lots of flowers in bloom, and plenty of painted turtles sunning themselves on the banks. The river twists and turns, which was a bit of a challenge in Bill’s 18’ canoe, but we were up for the challenge.  We made it upstream about 2 miles before turning back.  Nice trip.

Paddling through the twists and turns
