Uncle Tom stopped by this weekend with his boat in tow. This was a special treat, because it was not just any boat, but a 1948 Old Town wooden motor boat, beautifully restored and just perfect to take on the Concord River. We put together a picnic, grabbed the life jackets, and set off for a summer adventure.
The launch went smoothly, and we slowly eased into the river, past the families fishing on both shores at the boat landing. Once we were out on the river, it felt like we had entered a different world. The shore line is remarkably undeveloped, and the scenery varied. The river flows slowly, and is navigable by small motor boats, canoes, and kayaks. We passed a number of fishermen slowly trolling up and down the river, as well.
