Sunset Paddle

Just yesterday we took a tour of all girls out on a sunset paddle.  We had a few first-timers, and some experienced paddlers, and all-together it was a great group to go out with and enjoy a beautiful Seneca Lake sunset.

We set off the beach from the Village Marina around 6:20 p.m. Paddling north from there, we made our way past the Painted Rocks. In the distance we were greeted with views of the True Love sailboat against the serene backdrop of Seneca Lake.  There was a decent north wind in our faces as we headed to Hector Falls, but this group was up for the challenge.

Once we got to Hector Falls, the sun turned peachy-orange and there was an golden hue set against the falls. A playful bunch, these women splashed and laughed their way down the grass-lined canal to the base of Hector Falls.

After a few dozen camera clicks, the girls decided to head back to Watkins Glen.  As the sun got lower in the sky, the moon rose higher, and the blue herons flew overhead to their nests for the evening. Paddling toward the south end of Seneca Lake, the skies enveloped us with their pinkish-blues and the indigo blue lake water peacefully led our party back to the Seneca Harbor Marina.
