Summer's Many Points

Headed out into the early morning fog that hung thick over the Sudbury River in Concord, Massachusetts this past Friday.  The day would later prove to be a scorcha', but for its first few hours was shrouded and mystical with a tropical feel.  When the fog did finally burn-off the above pictured velvet-antlered buck appeared.

He, along with the blooming Cardinal flowers...
...and purple loosestrife served to remind that we've reached summer's midpoint.

The week before I'd enjoyed the boundless amounts of salt air and water Gloucester, Massachusetts has to offer.  Four days of camping, paddling, swimming, and eating seafood.  The high point of my summer (to this point) was joining some 200 other human-powered boats in accepting the Blackburn Challenge and completing the 20- mile circumnavigation of Cape Ann's outer portion.  

These two osprey had the best seat for watching the event's start in the Annisquam River...
