I took off on my paddle at about 8:45 from Boston Harbor Marina. The skies were a little gray, but the water was calm. Due to a new moon, the tides during this week were pretty big. The expected low tide was supposed to be -4.1 feet at 1:43, and this was going to be one lowest tides of the year. With big tides come big currents, and the area I was paddling already has sections where the currents are strong.
My route was simple and took about 4 hours. I paddled from Boston Harbor around Hope Island and back.
I saw loads of bald eagles around Hope Island, so that was pretty kewl.
Here's a vid of the day:
