Paddling the Dedham Trail (without the rain this time)

Yesterday 12 of us paddled the Dedham Water Trail in Dedham, MA. The sky was blue, the sun bright, temps reached the ‘70’s and IT DID NOT RAIN. It was a great contrast to my soggy trip around the loop last month. I advertised it in four of the Meetup.com paddling groups I belong to: Paddle Killingly, Western Mass Kayak, Worcester Paddling, and Boston Paddling. A few from each group signed up and we ended up with a nice flotilla of ten boats filled with nice people. The water level at Dover was near .6 feet, down slightly from the .8 that it was last time, but there was still only the one portage necessary, at the Needham Street bridge. Some photos:
