We could not have caught a better week weather wise. The days have been sunny and 75 and the nights have been perfect for sleeping. I’ve managed to get a little tan, and not a farmer-tan this time!!! One day of our trip was spent at scenic Wilson Pond in Wilton, which has clean, clear water and a gorgeous view of the mountains.
The following day, we drove over to Belgrade Lakes to rent a paddle board, and all took turns paddling around the lake. The water was so clear you could see the bottom and I found paddling past loons (literally me) relaxing and fun. I even attempted a handstand, and while it looks good in the photo, I ended up topping over the front of the board, into the water. After my slight fall, I managed to land two more hand stands on the board, not gracefully, I must add.
In planning our day of paddle boarding, I did some online research and only found overpriced rental places. We decided to avoid all of these listed locations and instead go to Castle Island Camps. In addition to paddle boards, they rent kayaks, canoes and motorboats and were extremely friendly and laid back. We will definitely be going back to them in the future and I can’t recommend them enough.
