Dividing Creek

Dividing Creek is one of the few hardwood lined creeks on the lower Delmarva peninsula. On a crystal clear fall day the kayaking upstream is spectacular. Our trip began at the Winters Quarter Boat launch on the Pocomoke River in Pocomoke City. An easy one mile paddle upstream […]

Oxford on the Tred Avon

Kayaking the Tred Avon from Oxford, MD offers a different experience from our normal  nature filled kayaking trips. Entering Oxford on Morris St., turn right on Strand Rd. and drive to a gravel parking lot just past The Oxford Condos. There is a small beach allowing you to launch […]

Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, in St. Michael’s MD, sponsors a week-end long small craft festival each fall. Small craft, many hand-built, are on display. Most of the builders are present and love to share about their craft. The beautiful wooden paddleboard enthralled me. Particularly after talking to […]

The Wild Ponies of Assateague

Assateague Island National Park kayak trips always feature plenty of wildlife. With the the wild ponies as the highlight. Ferry Landing Road is the best kayak put-in site. You can park right at the beach and unload practically into the water.  There’s a coarse gravel beach here, and […]

Great Stories

We skipped kayaking on a beautiful fall Saturday to attend the 2nd Annual Chesapeake Story Telling Festival at Chesapeake College.  My review, please please hold a 3rd festival! We were originally attracted to the festival because it featured Gwendolyn Briley-Strand as Harriet Tubman. With our grandchildren we’ve explored […]

Tuckahoe Creek Revisited

We last kayaked Tuckahoe Creek in the spring of 2014. With the new bridge, and road work complete where Rt 404 crosses the creek, the time arrived for a revisit to this area between Queen Anne and Hillsboro, MD. A small launch and park is located in Hillsboro. […]

NASA Docks

A 2020 update to the NASA Docks location. This area is very remote and on our last trip there we chose to kayak elsewhere due to questionable activity in the area. We did not feel comfortable leaving our vehicle unattended. Make your own decision but we have chosen […]

Prime Hook Wildlife Refuge

Summer 2020 update: Returning to this location in 2020 we discovered the upper reaches of this paddle had begun to fill with silt. While it was possible to navigate through the area paddling became more difficult. We’ve agreed this area is no longer quality kayaking and we will […]

Kayaking Swamps

Trap State Park near Laurel, DE features some of the northernmost cypress swamps. It’s one of our favorite places to paddle. In Canoe and Kayak Magazine I recently found “8 Swamp Paddling Getaways” . While it doesn’t include Trap State Park their swamps are definitely worth visiting. For […]
