After paddling for about 2 hours North, we entered the lake into the wind and some pretty hefty waves, (at least for novices like us!) after making some adjustments to our paddling technique we found that you really can steer these things in the wind. Our guide led us to an island to have lunch. Looking across a channel of water, we were face to face with a Bald Eagle sitting in its nest on a pine tree on another island.
After lunch, we paddled up the Magalaway River for a short distance then came back down and crossed into the Androscoggin River. As we paddled downstream, we passed under another Bald Eagle perched in a branch hanging over the river! In all we saw 15 Loon including one with a young one, Several Osprey, two Bald Eagles, but sadly no moose! That day trip changed my whole outlook! First, we now own kayaks and paddle every chance we get. Second, I am now more in tune with nature and the way that we sometimes mess it up.
