    Groton — Eric Whitman and his sons Nic, 10,  Austin, 18, and Chandler, 8, all of Groton, went kayaking Tuesday at Bluff Point State Park.

    Eric Whitman said they recently purchased the two sit-on-top kayaks and had been waiting for nice enough weather to try them out. "The wind is making it more work but it's worth it," he said after they returned to shore.

    The family lives up the road and frequently takes boats down to the park to paddle.
