On a breezy summer day, Nantucket sound is ablaze with sunlight and whitecaps. As the tide courses out around Sampsons Island, the placid waters of Cotuit Bay come to life as well. High overhead, a lone osprey dips down low as it spies an unwary scup that has lingered too long in the shallows. With an effortless dive, it drops into the water but returns empty-taloned. Its prey has cheated death and returned to the sanctuary of deeper water. As your kayak glides along, it is impossible to not be aware if the life that abounds in this protected area.
