Kayaking With Kids
Easy Cape Cod Day Trip for the Entire Family
Carole Ann Moleti, Carole Ann Moleti
Children and families love flock to the beaches and ponds of Cape Cod but the complex ecosystems are vulnerable to damage by overzealous visitors who can do terrible harm without even realizing it.
Kids love to play in sand, but can seriously damage dunes and marsh grasses, which disrupts runoff patterns, which erode beaches during storms. The delicate creatures they love to track and catch can easily be injured or killed even by moving them from one part of the beach to another that is not a suitable habitat. Water, weather, and wind are serious hazards when care is not taken in water craft.
This book incorporates field tested strategies for safe kayaking and water sports, including involving children in not only enjoying but also learning about the environment.
Carole Ann Moleti and her family spend winters sliding down steep, icy Northeastern slopes and summers on the lakes, rivers, beaches, and bays of Long Island Sound, upstate New York, and Cape Cod. A New York City native, she grew up on The Bronx waterfront where she learned to swim, sail, pilot a motorboat, and lifeguard. Carole's time as a resident of Boston, and many summers spent on Cape Cod with extended family, inspired her to write this guide.
