1 Marina Drive (at Daingerfield Island), Alexandria, VA, Washington, DC
Join me for a sunset paddle, launching just south of National Airport, to follow the shore south past Old Town Alexandria. If the mood strikes us, we may mingle near the bridge with the group launching at Belle Haven that evening. One of the features of this paddle is seeing the beauty of Wilson Bridge as it lights for the night, and listening to the wildlife as it prepares for the night.
The general plan is to hang in the water until 9 pm, when the golf course does a fireworks display, then return to Daingerfield.
I am unfamiliar with this launch, but understand there is limited parking. Arrive early, and plan to be on the water by 6:45 pm. This paddle is not appropriate for first timers. All participants must have a PFD, paddle float, bilge pump and -- a light on their deck. Bring water; I don't see anywhere to stop for a snack, so plan accordingly. There are no rentals at this location.
See you there!
