Venturing out on College pond today was wonderful. It is just one of Plymouth’s 450 ponds! Located in the Miles Standish State Forest, this pond really gives you the feel of being on a lake in NH, ME, or VT.
We had the lake to ourselves, and as we paddled around the shore I admired all the camps and cottages, and secretly pined for having one to myself. The water was very clean and crisp, and near the shore it was very clear. We even got to see a turtle leap off a rock and swim away; Tris found this especially amazing. She later went out onto the mini rock island to try to find her new shelled friend to no avail.
Definitely worth a paddle, and maybe even a picnic lunch under the trees on the beach!
