The Saco River, over in Maine has some nice stretches, Jim. Canoe or kayak and there's enough pick-up/put-in spots along the way, depending on how far you wish to go. We've got a canoe, 2 kayaks, and a paddle boat at the lake but the canoe and kayaks are portable when we want a little change. I've paddled the Saco in the canoe (with my daughter) but am getting too decrepit to slide into the kayaks. Even with the canoe, my knees stiffen up so much i need someone to steady the canoe when I groan my way back out after a paddle. Maybe at 85 I should not complain and be glad that I can still do it at all.Kayaking is a lot of fun and it's a good workout too. When I had my lake house I used to take the kayak out early am while the fog was still lifting off the water, it was so peaceful and serene.
