We left Wompatuck as the sun was rising, wheeling our kayaks on the carts. We walked for about 7 miles and then began paddling on the North River estuary. As we neared the ocean and heard the waves crashing, we were glad to not be out in the big swell. We paddled up a winding branch of the estuary until it got too narrow and shallow to paddle. We portaged one more time. This portage was only 3 miles. Once we launched again, we were in a sheltered bay. There was no swell to speak of and we had a tailwind. In the Plymouth harbor we paddled over to the Mayflower replica. It was bigger than we expected. I enjoyed paddling right below this big ship – and being dwarfed by it. We made our way to the Plymouth Yacht Club, where Lili and Gordon Colby greeted us. They own MTI Adventurewear and have been sponsoring us for years. It is a treat to be hosted by them in Plymouth. We have a lot planned for tomorrow and we're looking forward to it!
