This week we're venturing to Chebacco Lake! Over 10,000 years ago, the last of the glaciers retreated North, leaving behind deep gouges and depressions, which, luckily for us, have filled to become the many lakes and ponds that dot the Northshore! One of these, Chebacco Lake, sits half in Hamilton and half in Essex, and provides a perfect sanctuary when the ocean is a bit too rough. Come explore the lake with us as we paddle by lake-side cottages and in and out of the many coves that form the lake's perimeter.
Winter is such an amazing time to paddle, and with less boat traffic and more open access to the water, it's a great time to get out and explore the waterways we live near! Each week, we'll paddle a different location so that paddlers can learn about all of the awesome places we love to explore! From inland rivers and lakes (when ice permits), to tidal estuaries, dynamic coastlines, and open water paddles to islands, we'll have a beautiful winter on the water kayaking or paddleboarding on all the North Shore has to offer!
We'll plan on announcing each week's location the Monday before, based on the forecast for wind, tide, and temps. Since we live in New England and these forecasts have a tendency to change, all plans are subject to change, but with so many great options, we're sure you won't be disappointed even if we have to switch it up! These paddles are open to all levels, so sign up and we'll see you on the water!
I love discovering cool things! Sign me up!
