Wildlife Walk – Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge- Middletown, RI,

We had an absolutely fantastic day… and the on-shore breeze brought the warm water of the Bay to the beach which made for big waves and delightfully warm water…

The weather was spectacular for our Kayaking event!    On Saturday the 26th of June, we enjoyed cool breezes and calm waters as we paddled the Charles River and the small waterways and lagoons along its shoreline…  Then a fabulous lunch and a cold beer at Meadhall to end the perfect day…
