Full Moon at Lotus Garden Park

  • Lotus Garden Park

    1280 Sandbridge Rd, Virginia Beach, VA (map)

    36.731540 -75.984510

  • Lotus Garden Park is a small roadside park on the south side of Sandbridge Road, operated by the Parks and Recreation Department of the city of Virginia Beach. There is parking available for over a dozen cars.

     

     

    We will paddle about 3 miles south from the launch to northern end of Back Bay.  The sunset is at 7:39 PM and the full moon will rise at 8:16 PM.  We did this same route the last couple of years and the view of the moon rising over Sandbridge was spectacular.

    If we arrive at Back Bay early we can look for the homestead of Grace Sherwood (The Witch of Pungo) on the banks of Muddy Creek.

    Please bring a light for the return trip.

    I think I'll pass on this one... weather is looking too nasty for me... Maybe it will be better next month.

    I will check the weather forecast Monday morning and decide if this will be cancelled. It doesn't look very good right now.

      Muddy creek is an easy paddle even when windy, could be a little choppy out in Back Bay, but usually manageable for this short distance. Now, the cold air/water is another story! Too bad this warmth isn't sticking around.

    Really sorry to miss this inaugural full moon paddle, it was a lot of fun last time. I won't be able to get out of work soon enough.
    Anyone want to scout it 2 days early this Sunday April 13th?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
