Basha Kill, NY

Our first local paddle of the season.  Hoped to paddle more of the lake than we have in the past, but the weather didn't agree.  We almost made it to the osprey nest when we heard the first clap of thunder and paddled back to the car.

The day was shorter than we had hoped but any day we can lift the kayaks off the car, put them in the water and paddle for a couple of hours is a great day!
