Thanks, Hanna

Sunday, Sep 7, was a wonderful canoeing day, thanks to Hurricane Hanna. She had dumped lots of water on our area on Saturday, and by the time Sunday came around, all that was left was blue skies, and deep water.

We put in at a new place we found, right across the street from the Dedham Mall and Sears. There's a little dam there controlling a creek, and a parking lot by the building that controls the dam. Just off the parking lot is a short path to a sandy beach and the Charles river.

Put in there, and started upstream. The weather was absolutely perfect. The Charles is rather windy and narrow here, so there's plenty of water, but it can be a bit fast. We managed upstream just fine, though, eventually getting as far as the Dedham Parks and Recreation department. We got out there, had lunch, and had a nice drift back down to the car.
