Launch: Rented a kayak from a place in North Cape Cod (can't remember the name) and they transported the kayak to the put in at Hemenway Road Public Launch north of Orleans, Cape Cod, MA
Destination: Explore the area around Nauset Harbor/Bay.
Weather: Was suppose to be sunny and 70 degrees so I wore a t-shirt. It stayed foggy and cloudy and the temperature never rose above 57 degrees. Brrrr.

|1) It is always a concern when kayaking in a new area, especially with low visibility. I did take a GPS, map and compass.|
|2) Standard shore birds - gulls.|
|3) A big white swan paddling at 4 mph.|
|4) Geese paddling much slower.|
|5) A lobster boat. Boats are anchored in the harbor, not at docks.|
|6) Lobster trap markers.|
|7) Rental kayak. I stayed on the inland side opting to play it safe rather than deal with unknown currents at the opening to the Atlantic.|
|8) Was surprised to see about a half dozen seals closely monitoring my activity from a distance.|
|9) Snails dotting the bottom of the harbor.|
|10) Met two kayakers that had been kayaking out in Atlantic and I tagged along with them on the way back to the launch site.|
