Assabet Shallow and Clear
Spent a few hours on the Assabet River this afternoon and by the time I returned downriver to the Leaning Hemlocks (photo at left) my work week concerns had mostly evaporated. While the river's water level has dropped quite a bit, the clarity of the water was impressive allowing objects on the bottom to be readily seen.
This resulted in a fair number of bottles and beer cans being recovered from the (un)deep.
The trip upriver was a pleasant one with numerous blowdowns offering boaters simple satisfaction in finding a way through or around.
Passing by one rather nice riverside home, these recently erected tents caught my eye...
