CANCELLED June 14 Paddle Mashpee River, Mashpee

SO SAD TO HAVE TO CANCEL THIS ONE, BUT WIND GUSTS OF 36 mph FORECAST FOR TOMORROW MAKE IT  NECESSARY.

Parking is extremely tough for this location. Believing that we could park at the ramp only up until Memorial Day, I posted two May paddles on the Mashpee River. New signs say we will can legally park right at the launch up to June 15, so here's a June 14 paddle on the beautiful Mashpee River.

We paddle through the Mashpee Woodlands Conservation Area, perhaps seeing some birds along the shoreline and always osprey overhead. It is a beautiful paddle, end to end.

DIRECTIONS:  Meet at town landing on Mashpee Neck Rd. From US 6, take exit 5. Drive on MA 149 south, and then turn right onto MA 28 north. Go 3.5 miles and turn left onto Orchard Road. Drive another 0.5 mile and turn right onto Quinaquisset Ave. A quick left will take you onto Mashpee Neck Rd; it’s 1.5 miles to the town landing parking area...at the very end of the road. Do not be tempted to take a right prior to the end of the road.

Be in the water by 10:00 AM.  The group never waits past the launch time for any paddle.

Cancellation forced by weather will be posted the night before and I will email all who have RSVPd.

All paddles are for experienced and energetic paddlers. This is not a place to "get experience on the water"...you need that experience before paddling with this group. No exceptions.

It's a gorgeous, gorgeous paddle.
