Paddling Around the Point

Paddling in Shippan Point, Stamford, CT, sketched from kayak

Took the kayaks out for the first time this season. We paddled farther than usual around our peninsula, getting quite close to Stamford Harbor Ledge Lighthouse. Next time I'll have to take the anchor with me so I can sketch it. As it was a clear day, we could see the Manhattan skyline in the distance.

M. towed me on the way back so I could sketch.

Long Island Sound provided all the water I needed -- but I had to be careful not to lose my brush in the drink!
