Janes Island Tour

On September 25th, 2019 we paddled one of our favorite Maryland State Parks: Janes Island near Crisfield, Maryland. Janes Island Island State Park is blessed by beautiful (and deserted) sandy beaches, plentiful shorebirds and lots of working fishing boats providing a flavor of Chesapeake Bay industry. The State […]

A Trip to Saxis

On September 11, 2019 we launched from Saxis, Virginia: one of our favorite paddles on the Virginia Eastern Shore. Saxis is a little town with a beautiful location especially for kayakers. On this anniversary of 9/11 we had wonderful sun, but it was a little windy. Here are […]

Bald Cypress Luck

Wind Damage on Broad Creek

Miles and Tizzard Islands

A calm day on the water can turn windy and rough very quickly. When we arrived at Taylor’s Landing, near Girdletree, MD to begin our paddle the water was still with excellent visibility. A very deceptive start to our day. Taylor’s Landing offers multiple paddling options into the […]

Kayaking on Pitts Creek

Capt. John Smith’s presence on the Pocomoke River near Pitt’s Landing is well documented. On his trek up the Pocomoke to find drinkable water Smith passed Pitt’s Creek which today probably has changed little in appearance. Pitt’s Landing, on Bell Rd in New Church, VA., provides paddlers access […]
