Constitution Marsh Paddle
13 July 2003

This was the first time either Mary or John had kayaked.

We joined a tour out of Cold Spring, NY, with Hudson Valley Outfitters.  The tour included all equipment, enough instruction to paddle the kayak and a tour guide.

We entered the Hudson River from Foundry Cove in Cold Spring and then headed straight for the train bridge that takes us into Constitution Marsh.  Great views of West Point and the surrounding area.  Lunch was provided on the lawn of a local Audubon Center.
