Today, we will paddle the tidal Annisquam River in Gloucester. In late summer, the golds, reds, and soft patina of the river's salt marshes can be radiant. This is a place to discover sandpipers and plovers on their southbound migration, resting or feeding along the banks, or herons and egrets arising from the tidal grasses. Hawks and falcons will be in migration, and we will keep an eye skyward for red-tailed hawks, peregrine falcons, and merlins. Our kayaking adventure begins in the middle of the Annisquam River, and we will ride the tide out past Wingaersheek Beach and along the coast to the top of Crane Beach. Then we'll ride the tide once again as we paddle home into the Essex River Basin. Instructions and Directions: Meets in Essex. Participants should have some ocean kayaking experience. All equipment, plus transportation to the put-in site, will be provided. Double kayaks are available for those with limited kayaking experience. A confirmation with directions and information on what to bring will be sent. Registration is required. Register online or call 978-887-9264 to register by phone.

Topsfield Massachusetts is an area of rolling hills and meandering streams and has some of the highest land in Essex County. Topsfield has a rural nature and contains a typical New England town common.
The town is home to many acres of protected land and trails which includes Bradley Palmer State Park. It is an excellent choice for hiking and biking in the spring and summer and cross country skiing in the winter. Topsfield also has plenty of agricultural land and hosts the Topsfield Fair.
The Topsfield Fair is America’s oldest agricultural fair established in 1818 and held every October during harvest time. The Fair is chock full of agricultural exhibits as well as homemade baked goods and farm animals. There is also a largest pumpkin contest-always the most popular exhibit. It also has plenty for the kids including great stuff to eat and also a midway loaded with amusement park rides and games and a parade. The Topsfield Fair is a fun time for everyone and well worth the price of admission. Plan to spend a day there next October-you will be glad you did.
