MOGUL RIVER MICE
Somehow, the newsletter got some bum information. Here is the real scoop on the River Mice paddles for June.
As with all Mice paddles, email Jeff if you are going. If we know you are coming, we’ll wait for you. If not, we won’t. Times may change for tides or particpation. Also, keep checking your email and this blog for other impromptu paddles. We're always trying to get out on the water!
June 5 Sunday (time may be TBA)
Lynnhaven Inlet Paddle
This paddle is always a favorite. Put in is at the Lynnhaven Boat Ramp on the west side of the Lesner Bridge. We paddle around some kayak-friendly areas in Lynnhaven Bay, then head over to Bubbas for a snack and beverage before returning to the boat ramp. This paddle is suitable for all but the raw beginner- crossing the channels can be a little tricky.

Summer Solstice Paddle at Owl’s Creek
Put in at the Owl’s Creek Boat Ramp on General Booth Boulevard in Virginia Beach. Celebrate the longest day of the year with a relaxing paddle behind the Marine Science Museum. We will stop at one of the Rudee Inlet eateries for a snack and beverage before paddling back to take-out. This paddle always has good wildlife, and is great for beginners.
June 25 or 26 (Sat or Sun)
Munden Point to West Neck- VB Scenic Waterway
This year, the River Mice are going to try to paddle the length of the Virginia Beach Scenic Waterway- from Munden Park to Lynnhaven Inlet. The first step is this one, on the North Landing River and West Neck Creek. It is about 8 miles for the whole paddle, or about 3-1/2 miles to the Pungo Ferry Bridge. You will need to have some paddling experience, as we may be dealing with boat wakes on the river, and about 3-4 hours of paddling. The Pungo Ferry option is available for those who don’t want to go the whole way.
