Weekend Road Trip: Christmas Day at Plum Island

Plum Island


Plum Island, Ma. is an hour’s drive north of Boston and it’s one of our favorite places to kayak. As you can see from the photos, both the Merrimac and Parker River were covered with ice.

    What a fabulous place – I’d love to see it sometime. It looks perfect for kayaking, or my favorite, canoeing. What is the building in the first photo?
