Skelton Flowage 9-19-2015

Yesterday I led a group of 10 MOAC members on a five-hour paddle of Skelton Flowage, a lake created by a large dam on the Saco River.

The weather was a picture-perfect late summer day; yes, there are still a couple of days left in summer.

As usual, I took a group photo shortly after launch. Top aboveĀ is one version, while the shot below includes Ruth Mueller, who paddled bow in my canoe.

Jim Hatch was a new member. He told us that he’d joined about 20 hours earlier.

[I’ll finish this post later, adding some of the swimming pix plus some from Rajiv.]
