Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned paddler, KCL’s guide book has something for everyone! Unlike some other New England paddling guides, paddlers will never out grow KAYAK EASTERN CONNECTICUT: 70 Eastern CT Paddling Destinations! Click the link and come join the fun!

As a beginner gains strength and confidence, they will also want to explore and paddle longer distances.  They will begin to enjoy the twisting turning rivers as they unfold and will find themselves less satisfied with paddling lakes and ponds.  They will start to look forward to seeing the next bird or animal around the next turn and enjoy the first Sun Dog they see in a tidal cove.

Beginners won’t necessarily be looking to jump into rapids; but, they will quickly begin to consider paddles that offer at least a little variation from past paddles. Would you like to paddle out to see the annual swarming of the swallows on the Connecticut River?  Would you like to one day camp on an island while paddling a river? Would you like to watch a heron try to steal a fish from a gull or beaver going about their daily chores?  Lou’s guide provides quiet easy paddles, moderately easy adventures, river base camp information, and some more challenging locations that will require advanced river experience.  Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned paddler, this book has  something for everyone–and you will never out grow it!

kayaking Eastern ConnecticutEverything great in life is progressive; it never stops and stands still. As you grow in your strength and knowledge as a paddler, your experiences need to grow as well or you’ll become bored and your kayak will sit on a shelf in your garage more than you will bring it to the water. Let Lou show you around the various paddling experiences found in Eastern Connecticut, and in a way that will get you and your kayak out on the water more often!

Lou has a penchant for exploring new places and she loves to explore even the smallest details of the even the biggest places. She will NEVER go out into the middle of a pond, spin around, and say OK I was here, now I’ll write about it because this goes against her natural way of viewing life.  Lou is a traveler and an explorer. She gives readers all the small yet important details and shares all the secrets, cautions, positives, and negatives for each location.  She even includes specialty trips like the annual swarming of the swallows, challenge paddles,  and river camping on the Connecticut River.

There is something for everyone in this book and you will never outgrow it! There is paddling and challenges for every level of paddler, and Lou grew up paddling Eastern CT so she knows it better than guide authors who day-trip from out of state. One of Lou’s greatest inspirations is to inspire others; let her inspire you to expand beyond what you think you can do to what you can actually experience and accomplish while enjoying the exhilarating feeling of fulfillment and growth as you explore Eastern CT waters!
