Wednesday Paddle from Aquia Landing

Aquia Landing (formerly known as YouBeDam Landing) is a nice kayak launch spot still new to me and many others. We had our first exploratory paddle from there in March and have been eager to return.  For this outing, assume an exploratory paddle distance of 10-12 miles – including some open water. Depending on conditions and the interests of the participants, we will either head northwesterly up Aquia Creek, or we’ll head southerly along the wide Potomac River, then west into Potomac Creek for a lunch stop with the eagles near Boykins Island – part of the Crows Nest Preserve.


9:30am   Rendezvous at Landing

10am    On the Water

2:30-3pm  Return (approximate)

Pack a lunch and water and – if you like – something snack-able to share with the group.

Dress appropriate for water temperatures – which may be in the low 50s.

    I'd really rather be paddling...but that cannot be. Today the movers load the truck; settlement is later today. Adios folks...remember, Southport NC might be a worthwhile destination for my paddling friends. Please come visit.

      We'll see you soon! No "goodbye" here, just "send smoke signal when you are ready for a landing party!"

      No, it was the luck of the ladies. (No credit to me.)

      Dennis - If you are in the presence of ladies and something good happens purely by chance you really need to learn to take credit for it. In my case at least, it's a rare enough occasion that I have to take it any way I can get it.

    I thought your next trip there would be on the weekend. There's no way to escape work tomorrow. :(
