Social Distancing By Kayak

The current pandemic has allowed for endless time to spend in the plastic boat! There is always something new to see and experience in a kayak – even if you paddle the same rivers and creeks every time. The weather is always different, the wildlife, the tides, etc.

I have stayed in the Urbanna area along the various creeks feeding the lower Rappahannock River. You can paddle for miles and miles in any direction so no two trips are the same.

Since Memorial Day weekend, the town of Urbanna has seen more boat traffic than we have witnessed in years. It seems everyone who has a power boat, kayak, jet ski or sailboat is out on the water enjoying the cool spring weather. The water temp is approaching 80 and some of the kids are learning to water ski.
