Gridlock on the Charles

A little outside the blog's normal scope, but the whole family hit Nahanton Park for the festivities as Charles River Canoe and Kayak celebrated the opening of their latest rental site. It's incredibly exciting that CRCK has made another section of the Charles available to the non-boat opening public. Judging by the crowd, I'm not the only excited one. Word is that Newton's Parks and Rec department was instrumental in making this beautiful stretch of the Charles more accessible.

With a flotilla of three kayaks, Son of NS&S and Princess NS&S took their grandfather on a paddle up between the marshes south of Nonantum Street along Cutler Park. A totally different experience than one gets starting at CRCK's Comm. Ave. or Brighton locations. Beautiful.
