Point Judith Pond with RICKA – July 22, 2017

Put on at the Upper Pond
It was a beautiful day, so I decided to join the RICKA crew on a joint Flatwater/Sea Kayak trip on Point Judith Pond. I paddled up to Marina Park in the Upper Pond where the group was meeting. We had twelve boats, and the toughest part of this trip was launching at the busy boat ramp.

In all the years we have been staying at the cottage, I've never done an end-to-end trip on Point Judith Pond. We headed out of the Upper Pond, and headed down the the east side of Point Judith Pond along Harbor Island, Ram Island and Great Island. 

Ready for the crossing
On entering the Port of Galilee, we bobbed in the waves and debated where to stop for lunch.  We finally decided on the beach in Jerusalem.  Of course, that meant crossing the busy boat channel.

From there, we paddle up the west side of the pond along Snug Harbor to Plato where we crossed the busy boat channel again.  I stayed with the group until we reached Gardener Island, and then I headed back to the cottage.
