A quick paddle...
This morning I took my kayak over to Powhatan Creek and took a leisurely paddle down the creek. I haven't been kayaking for nearly three years, so it was very refreshing to get back on the water. Powhatan Creek is a tributary of the James River and is a great spot to paddle - hardly any currents and very sheltered. There is some development along the creek but nature abounds here - lots of birds, fish (BIG catfish that can give you quite a startle!), turtles, and tranquil scenics.
I look forward to more paddling in the area. A couple of miles from here is Morris Creek - a part of the Chickahominy Wildlife Management area. The area is so untouched that parts of the film The New World was shot there - should be lots of fun! Here are a few pictures from today:
