The 2nd Annual Witch Paddle and coat drive, sponsored by Adventure Mystic, held on October 17 was a success. Beautiful weather, sun and light winds. They gathered at one of Adventure Mystic's launch areas, suited up, adjusted their hats and were off with the current. I was only able to get a handful of shots when the outgoing tide carried them down the river for their two hour flight around the Mystic River. No witches fell in the water and melted at this event.
