Instead of the smell of hot dogs and peanuts and the sound of bat hitting ball, I had my paddle sweeping through the water and a hot cocoa seventh-inning break near the "Grey Monster" (photo left) in Saxonville. No home runs were launched over the wall.
Of course many boat launches were checked before one was found that had both open water and reasonable access to it. Surmounting this snow bank...
Surprisingly there were no ice shelves and the river was open to both banks.
Water level was ideal and my boat and I passed through the Stone Bridge's left portal for the first time (if memory serves correctly)...
I wondered if there'd be any trash and found some that had wintered over...
Beware the Ides of March. Hopefully the snowboard rider is not buried under the snow or fish fodder under the river.
Happy spring, or late winter as we call it in Vermont.
Thanks Bernie, I'll be wary of those Ides.
The name on the snowboogie board described the winter we've experienced in the Greater Boston area perfectly...WHAM-O!
