Cape Cod Kayaking Adventures

This is my last post about my Cape Cod trip. I’ve talked with people who were confused about all the timing, but I assure you I’m back in LA and up to my usual tricks. When I travel I can’t give you the lengthy posts that require a lot of time and attention, so I usually write them once I’m back on Los Angeles soil. So sure enough, I’m back and as of tomorrow I’ll be back to my usual postings. Infact, tomorrow is Wednesday which means it’s time for Comedy Wednesdays! That’s right, I have Comedy Bang Bang tickets tonight, so expect a full report.

Now, back to a topic I love, kayaking in Cape Cod. I did this twice while on my last trip and each of these makes for a great afternoon activity. It also gives my arms an excellent workout, which often get ignored on my stair walks.

These photos were taken mid-kayak on Seymour Pond. The photo above makes it look very still, which it was at times, but don’t take that for granted. All it takes is a big gust of wind to feel yourself swiftly moving in a direction you don’t want to go. In the below photo you can see my dad waving behind me.

While on the opposite end of the pond the clouds rolled in and before we knew it, we could hear thunder. You can guess, we high-tailed it back to shore. It got pretty dark after that, but these intermittent thunderstorms are common on the Cape.

Our next kayaking adventure (on a different day with sunny skies) took place at Scargo Lake. This gorgeous lake had extremely warm, clear water. This was such a joy. We often paddled with our feet over the sides of the kayak. We are not residents of Denis, so we are not permitted to park in the beach lot (see the beach way on the opposite side of the lake?), so instead we park in a public area on the opposite shore. Here they have a boat launch and small shorefront.

This day was perfect for kayaking. So still, so it wasn’t much of a workout but such a delightful glide around the lake.

Teens were practicing their boating skills in the center while us kayakers were doing loops around the perimeter of the lake.

You can even see the tower over looking the lake along the tree-line on the right side of the photo.

So calm. If I didn’t have a flight to catch later that afternoon, I would have stayed here all day. If you own kayaks, or want to even go swimming, visit Scargo Lake!
