Crew 1 had the chance to escape the heat of Boston last week! We took a trip to Ponkapoag Pond in the Blue Hills Reservation to learn canoeing skills with the Appalachian Mountain Club. We made our way through traffic to arrive that morning as the heat set in. Our great guide taught us about water safety and got us outfitted with paddles and life jackets. We spent the rest of the day practicing our paddling, playing canoe tag (which is harder than it sounds), and enjoying the environment.
