From Poplar Point you can paddle either up- or downriver. (For a description of the upper portion of the Boughton, refer to the Boughton River write-up.) Heading downriver toward the bay, you will observe that the Boughton expands greatly. Your launching spot on Poplar Point was the site of the old ferry to Chapel Point, which ultimately connected to the village of St. Georges. Many poplar trees, not especially abundant throughout the Island, grew in this area. Poplar is a relatively hard wood used in building, but as a farmer friend of mine explained, Islanders burned poplar in their fireplaces because it cleans the chimneys of creosote.
