Kayaking the Mattabesset

Jen bought herself a shiny new red kayak this weekend so it only made sense to take it out on the water the next day. We planned a trip along the Mattabesset river which is about 30 minutes north of New Haven. It's a quiet, slow, meandering river. Along the way we saw turtles, herons, a beaver and lots of felled trees that had been chewed by beavers. We paddled for about 2 hours and finished up on the Connecticut river.
